Smile What does that ribbon mean???

I know we all see them all the time on people's cars the magnet ribbon that is supposed to stand for something but 65% of the time we are like what in the heck does that stand for???? LOL

It is kinda odd how some of them are lumped together though.... My two cancers I had are in different colors which doesn't make sense to me since they were very close (Kidney and Bladder)

A friend of mine in my Cancer Survior support group I'm in sent me a link that actually says what each one means and I thought I would share....

YELLOW: Amber Alert, POW/MIA, Troop/Military Support

GREEN: Depression, Organ/Tissue Donation, Environment

TEAL: Sexual Assault, Ovarian Cancer

ROYAL BLUE: Arthritis, Child Abuse, Education

PURPLE: Alzheimers, Cystic Fibrosis, Domestic Violence

RED: AIDS/HIV, Drug Abuse Resistance, DUI (Drunk Driving)

ORANGE: Leukemia, Racial Tolerance, Hunger

BLACK: Gang Prevention, Mourning

PINK: Breast Cancer

GRAY: Diabetes, Mental Illness, Asthma/Allergies

PEARL: Lung Cancer, Emphysema, Multiple Sclerosis

Rainbow: Gay Pride, Same Sex Marriage
