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.
