Awareness Ribbon Colors

Before making a Unique Ribbon Shawl, you need to know what color awareness ribbon you want it to refer to.  Such as a pink ribbon for breast cancer, lavender for all cancers and purple for all cancer survivors. Some may wonder what other ribbon colors stand for, which color ribbon represents what illness, campaign, group, etc.  I found a website that has almost all the colors and I’ve used this site many times. Click here to research what color you will need.

There is also another chart that is referenced by a Revelry pattern and it kind of fills in the blanks for that bigger list, but is NOT a full list.

Dark Blue
Child Abuse, Colon Cancer, Arthritis, Police Officer lost in the Line of Duty, CFS

Light Blue
Men’s cancers, Thyroid Disease, Grave’s Disease

The Cancer Prevention Diet

Since its original publication a quarter-century ago, The Cancer Prevention Diet has been one of the most popular guides to the prevention and relief of society’s most feared disease. Drawing on the most up-to-date cancer research, Michio Kushi and Alex Jack present a dietary program that can be implemented safely and simply at home, at a fraction of the cost of usual meals and medical care. The new volume contains current statistics and research while presenting the core traditions of the macrobiotic way of life.  This completely revised and updated twenty-fifth anniversary edition includes:

• Broader dietary guidelines and new recipes
• New research on the twenty most frequent types of cancer
• New ways to combine macrobiotics with chemotherapy, radiation, and more
• The latest statistics, studies, and treatments
• The role of positive emotions in the healing process.

Paperback Book Publication Date: August 18, 2009

Personal comment:  I recently watched a VERIA television show, “The Incurables” featuring a woman who 15 years ago was given a short time to live having Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and now is completely free of cancer — currently a macrobiotic counselor in Boston.  This appears to be a very real & successful diet to easily and inexpensively follow.
