What are the Cancer Awareness Colors?

by Lisa Fayed, About.com Guide

Awareness colors have become increasingly popular to garner attention for diseases and causes. Cancer is no exclusion – many cancer types have a designated color that are used for bracelets, ribbons, and other products.

Certain months and weeks have also been designated to create awareness about many types of cancer. Not all types have months or colors, but many of the more commonly diagnosed types do.
