Awareness Ribbon Meaning for Cancer
After my post about Knitting Rays of Hope I wanted to do more research about knitting for cancer patients. This seemed like a good place to start.
I was thinking about a dozen colors or so, but no, how about 30. Each one representing a different type of cancer. I can’t explain it but this information was heavy on my heart. With every color I added I pictured a family in pain. If we could cut just one color – Lavender would be my first choice, it represents All Cancers.
