February is National Cancer Awareness Month. I knew there were several different types of cancers out there. As I was researching on what I should write for this month, I found the ribbons chart. It shows you what color ribbon is used for each cancer. It really puts things in perspective. The harder part is to realize there are more cancers out there than there are on this ribbon chart.
No matter your age, or what cancer it is, it’s scary to hear the words you have cancer. You never get answers fast enough to ease or fuel your fears.
For those who have survived, going through and lost the battle of cancer, we honor you with these ribbons. We hope with all our hearts that cures and preventatives are found so that no one will ever have to hear those three awful words “you have cancer”.
