Some cancer awareness colors are lavender, pink and purple. Lavender signifies all types of cancer, pink is used for breast cancer, and purple represents pancreatic cancer. The pink awareness ribbon is one of the most common and well-known symbols of cancer awareness.
Cancer awareness colors have become a popular and effective way to draw attention to many types of diseases and disorders. Many cancer awareness colors are associated with a certain time of the year as well. For example, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, so in September many cancer awareness projects feature the color gold, the color associated with those particular types of cancer.
