Cancer Ribbon Colors

Cancer Awareness Colors

It seems like colored ribbons have always been associated with different types of cancer. However, it wasn't until the early 1990s that this association started when peach and then pink ribbons were used to spread awareness about breast cancer. Today, you can find a different color ribbon associated with almost every type of cancer.

While wearing a colored ribbon is a simple way to show support, many of our customers here at TieMart go beyond the ribbon and look for clothing accessories, like ties, socks or women's scarves, to match those ribbon colors. For walks or other fundraising events, consider having t-shirts or hats made in these colors, too.

Here's a list of colors in relation to the cancer type. Others have found this list useful for coordinating group attire, and we hope you will too.
