October 18 2011 Cancer Newsletter

Hello! I hope this newsletter finds you well this week!

I love color and since breast cancer awareness has us all seeing pink these days, I thought I would research the various other colors of cancer, since breast cancer is far from being the only one!

The list is interesting, including cancers that affect men, such as Male Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer and Testicular Cancer, among others.

Various sorts of items are available so that you can proudly wear, use, or carry your particular “torch” of pride with you as a reminder of your bravery, or in memory of a loved one.

Some items are useful, while others are just plain fun! You will see mugs, t-shirts, hoodies, caps, mouse pads, stickers, necklaces, bracelets, car magnets, cell phone adornments, and even Christmas ornaments. Enjoy!

General Cancer Awareness = Lavender
Breast Cancer = Pink
Gynecological Cancers = Lavender
Lung Cancer = Clear or Pearl
Ovarian Cancer = Teal
Cancer Survivorship = Yellow
Male Breast Cancer = Pink & Blue
Head & Neck Cancer = Red & White
Lymphoma = Red
Pancreatic Cancer = Purple
Bladder Cancer = Yellow
Childhood Cancers = Gold
Hodgkin’s disease = Orchid
Melanoma = Black
Prostate Cancer = Blue
Testicular = Orchid
Bone Cancer = White

Also, I found if you search “cancer ribbons”, there are many suggestions, including clip art that you may want to look into. Happy exploring!

Have a blessed and healthy week!
