Awareness Ribbon And Bracelet Colors And Meanings

Awareness Ribbon And Bracelet Colors And Meanings

I always see people wearing ribbons or bracelets to support different organizations/ disease awareness, and I wonder what color is for what? It can be confusing. Some colors and awareness ribbons have multiple meanings. We did the best we could to compile a list of colors and meanings from multiple sources and we checked with many of the foundations represented for accuracy. Awareness Ribbons by Color Pink Ribbon : Meaning: Most commonly associated with breast cancer awareness, this ribbon is also a symbol for birth parents, and childhood cancer awareness (alternative color: light blue) Yellow Ribbon : Meaning: We’ve all seen this symbol used to support our troops, but it is also a symbol for MIA/POW, suicide prevention, adoptive parents, amber alerts, bladder cancer, spina bifida, endometriosis, and a general symbol for hope. A yellow ribbon with a heart is used to represent the survivors left behind after a suicide. Pale Yellow Ribbon : Meaning: This color is a symbol of spina bifida Red Ribbon : Meaning: Most commonly associated with the fight against AIDS and HIV, this ribbon also is a symbol for heart disease, stroke, substance abuse, MADD, DARE, Epidermolysis Bullosa, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Burgundy Ribbon : Meaning: This color is a symbol of brain aneurysm, Cesarean section (worn upside down), headaches, hemangioma, vascular malformation, hospice care, multiple myeloma, William’s syndrome, Thrombophilia, Antiphospholid Antibody Syndrome, and adults with disabilities.

Does Diabetes Have A Month? Or A Color For Awareness?...does The World Know?

Does Diabetes Have A Month? Or A Color For Awareness?...does The World Know?

Pink this. Pink that. Everywhere pink, pink, pink. October is pink and it's hard to miss the pink, pink, pink. Why doesn't diabetes have a month or a color? Wow, it does? REALLY? Someone I consider active in the cause recently asked me this question and I stood dumbfounded as I realized that this person—in my estimation someone who is active, involved and diabetes-conscious—had no clue that November is Diabetes Awareness Month and/or that ‘diabetes blue’ is a thing. Now before you jump to conclusions and say that NO ONE could be active in diabetes causes and not know about the significance of ‘blue’ and/or November 14th...take pause. It could be perfect timing to lock, load, and shoot; but I look at it much differently. I ask, why that person doesn’t know. Why doesn’t your neighbor know? Why doesn’t your postman know? Why do so many…simply not know? And that my dear partners-in-battle falls squarely upon our shoulders. It is the fault of all of us, collectively, socially, as a group, as an entity, as a movement. If the world at large does not know about diabetes, the harm it can cause, the damage it can cause, that it is not caused by eating candy, and the list goes on and on…and on. If you blame the world at large, you have fallen prey as many before you who were locked and loaded to make a difference in this world. But at the end of the day, the world did not listen. And THAT is our fault. Why? Because it’s not their job to listen to us. It’s our job to get them to listen. To make them listen. To make the world around us understand a little more about this disease called diabetes. The ‘pink folks’? Ohhhhh they knew exactly what they were doing. And they didn’t care if others thought it was stupid or weird. pink handguns, pink Kentucky F Continue reading >>

Diabetes Awareness Ribbon Claimed The Color Blue

Diabetes Awareness Ribbon Claimed The Color Blue

Pink is for breast cancer, red is for heart disease, purple for pancreatic cancer, and now, blue is for diabetes. I am glad diabetes is going to have a colored ribbon. If the ribbon can do for diabetes awareness what pink has done for breast cancer, it will be a good thing. At any rate, here is some information from the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) as we begin November – Diabetes Awareness month: New figures recently launched by the International Diabetes Federation indicate that the number of people living with diabetes has risen to 366 million. Diabetes is responsible for 4.6 million deaths a year – 1 every 7 seconds. Healthcare spending on diabetes has reached USD 465 billion. Diabetes is among the top 10 causes of disability, resulting in devastating complications such as blindness and lower limb amputations. All nations—rich and poor—are suffering the impact of the diabetes epidemic Diabetes is undermining global development. Diabetes hits the poorest hardest The IDF wants us to GO BLUE FOR DIABETES! Here are some of their suggestions: Organize a Flash Mob: Abu Dhabi, Colombo, and Tel Aviv are the latest cities to join the World Diabetes Day Flash Mob Challenge.

Why Wear Pearls For Lung Cancer?

Why Wear Pearls For Lung Cancer?

What does white symbolize? It depends on where you live. In some countries, white is the color of purity, in others; it is the color of mourning. In November in the US, white is the color for the lung cancer awareness ribbon. As an awareness color, it represents a characteristic of lung cancer; lung cancer symptoms often go unnoticed. The symptoms of lung cancer are like other, less serious diseases. For example, lung cancer’s earliest symptoms- coughing, wheezing, chest pain, and fatigue-are similar to the flu, asthma or pneumonia. Only as the cancer spreads do more serious symptoms, like blood in sputum, pain or difficulty swallowing, or a high-pitched sound when taking a breath-give a clue that something is seriously wrong. By then, the cancer is advanced. Survival rates for lung cancer are the same as they were in the 1970s. People who are diagnosed with Stage 1A and 1B non-small cell lung cancer have only a 49% and 45% chance of 5-year survival. For all lung cancers, the 5-year survival rate is only around 15%. According to the National Cancer Institute, in 2013 the investment in lung cancer research was $285.9 million, while that same year the investment in breast cancer research was $559.2 million. As these figures attest, breast cancer research funding was almost twice as much as lung cancer funding. The survival statistics and this funding imbalance speak to the need for a change in thinking about lung cancer. Janet Freeman-Daily, an advocate diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer, got to the crux of the matter when she wrote, “Lung cancer has an image problem. The first question I hear when I mention my disease is: ‘Did you smoke?’ People blame patients for getting lung cancer. The breast cancer community has changed how the world sees their disease.

What Does That Awareness Ribbon Mean? Symbolism For 7 Popular Colors

What Does That Awareness Ribbon Mean? Symbolism For 7 Popular Colors

Awareness ribbons are everywhere, whether in the form of car magnets, windshield stickers, or pins on our clothes. No matter where you see them, the idea is still the same: for that person to show their support to the world for a certain cause or organization. Before writing this article, I only knew what a handful of awareness ribbon colors actually meant or supported. Are you curious, too? Here’s what the most common awareness ribbon colors mean! Pink Ribbon: Pink is most commonly associated with breast cancer awareness, but it’s used for more than just that. What many people don’t know is that pink ribbons are also symbols for respecting birth parents and for childhood cancer awareness. Yellow Ribbon: Yellow is commonly seen as a symbol to support our troops and to give us hope. However, it is also a symbol for POW/MIA (Prisoners of War, Missing in Action), suicide prevention, adoptive parents, spina bifida, sarcoma, missing children, bone cancer, craniofacial acceptance, and endometriosis. Also, be aware that a yellow ribbon with a heart is used to represent the survivors left behind after a suicide. Red Ribbon: Red is generally used to show support for the fight against HIV/AIDS. This ribbon is also a symbol for stroke, heart disease, substance abuse, MADD, DARE, epidermolysis bullosa, complex regional pain syndrome (formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy), and vasculitis. Blue Ribbon: Blue is associated with child abuse awareness/prevention. It is also used to represent drunk driving awareness, colon cancer (alternative ribbon color: brown), dystonia, bullying awareness, osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disease), addiction recovery awareness, prostate cancer, Huntington’s disease, domestic violence, victim’s rights, free speech, Canada’s N Continue reading >>

Ok, I’m Confused…the Symbol For Diabetes Awareness Is…what?

Ok, I’m Confused…the Symbol For Diabetes Awareness Is…what?

If you were to do a series of online searches on Diabetes Awareness symbols, chances are that you’d encounter just what we have: confusion. There truly are several symbols out there that represent diabetes awareness. Some are more popular than others, however, and that’s what we’re hoping to do with this brief list: to show you three of the most commonly identified symbols so that you too can join in the fight against diabetes. 1. A grey ribbon with a drop of red The drop of red is meant to symbolize the blood used to test blood sugar. In general, this ribbon tends to be the most popular of the three within the United States, as it has been around the longest. ★ TYPE 1 HAS THEIR OWN RIBBON? ★ Type 1 diabetes actually does have its own awareness ribbon. One half of the ribbon is blue, and the other is grey, which also has a drop of red. *** What’s our favorite way to show to demonstrate our diabetes awareness? We really like to: Sock It to Diabetes! Sometimes we’ll wear one blue sock with one grey sock. Or one orange, and one blue. Well, you get the picture. You can help us Sock It To Diabetes. 2. A blue circle As an attempt to unify the fight against diabetes, the United Nations (UN) introduced the blue circle in 2006. Blue, according to diabetesbluecircle.org, “…reflects the color of the sky and the flag of the United Nations,” while the circle is meant to symbolize unity. ★ Help a Patient with Leg & Foot Ulcers ★ Sometimes insurance isn’t enough when the only medication that gives you hope costs more than insurance will provide. This requires thousands of dollars in co-pays or other out-of-pocket costs. Hundreds of patients, many whom are diabetic, who are being treated are choosing between their health and their family’s financial liveliho Continue reading >>

Inspiring Diabetes Tattoos

Inspiring Diabetes Tattoos

Over 29 million people in the United States alone have diabetes. That’s 9.3 percent of the population. And each year, 1.4 million more people are diagnosed. In adults, over 90 percent of those diagnoses are for type 2 diabetes, though many of the tattoos below are on those with type 1 diabetes or on those who love them. Many people who have diabetes, or know someone who does, choose to get inked. For some, it’s for their own safety: Getting the word “diabetic” tattooed on their arm can help make sure those around them are aware in case of an emergency. For others, it’s about raising awareness. And for loved ones, it’s about solidarity. Whatever the reasons, these tattoos, which were submitted by some of our readers, all send powerful messages. Check them out below! If you'd like to share the story behind your diabetes tattoo, email us with the subject line "My diabetes tattoo" and be sure to include: a photo of your tattoo, a short description of why you got it or why you love it, and your name. “I decided to get my diabetes tattoo mainly because I never wore my medical bracelet and I wanted to make sure that I had some sort of permanent marking in case of emergency. Since having the tattoo, I have found that it, in addition to keeping me safe, also allows me to commemorate my struggles as a diabetic and showcase my artsy flair.” -Amelia “This tattoo is on my leg. My son drew this in pencil 10 days before he passed away. He was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 4 and died at age 14 on March 25, 2010.” -Jen Nicholson “I’ve had type 1 diabetes since January 3, 2007. The butterfly represents me, the blue circle represents type 1 juvenile diabetes, and the grey ribbon represents diabetes awareness.” -Vanessa “About a year ago, I got ‘DIABET Continue reading >>

Jdrf Is True Blue For National Diabetes Awareness Month

Jdrf Is True Blue For National Diabetes Awareness Month

Fall is arriving in all its usual glorious colors—pumpkin orange, apple red, forest green, and … blue? That’s right. Thanks to National Diabetes Awareness Month, blue is the color to flaunt this November. This year’s theme is “All for 1!” and the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community will have ample opportunity to showcase its team spirit. November is truly a month of wonders—World Diabetes Day falls on November 14, the anniversary of insulin discoverer Frederick Banting’s birth. But even before that, on November 1, JDRF will be celebrating the second annual T1Day. Inaugurated by JDRF on November 1, 2011 (11-1-11), T1Day is an occasion to use our collective voice to reach as many people around the world as we can, to raise awareness about T1D and celebrate the lives of those who live with T1D and those who love them. Just a few of the plans we have in store: the national office of JDRF is creating public service announcements that can be submitted to local newspapers; some chapters are organizing groups to deck themselves in “JDRF blue” and join the audiences of local television news shows; the Empire State Building in New York City will be lit up in blue on World Diabetes Day; and on T1Day, JDRF will be posting a continual stream of updates via its Facebook page and Tweeting every one minute past the hour, every hour. This is just a sample of the plans we’re putting into action. For the inside scoop on these and other exciting events, visit JDRF’s Facebook page and follow us on Twitter, now through the month of November. This year, there’s an especially meaningful way to get involved—as an advocate. JDRF’s most important advocacy goal this year is convincing Congress to renew the Special Diabetes Program (SDP). Established in 1997, the SDP has s Continue reading >>

Why The Blue Circle?

Why The Blue Circle?

I can't quite remember who asked me, but in front of San Francisco City Hall last Friday evening, during our World Diabetes Day celebrations, somebody pointed to my pin and asked, "Why the blue circle, anyway? What does that mean?" They also wanted to know why the logo didn't have the world "diabetes" stamped across it: "Who's going to recognize that this stands for diabetes?!" For goodness' sake, it's supposed to be like the ubiquitous pink ribbon for breast cancer, red ribbon for AIDS, or yellow ribbon for bring-home-the-troops. Setting the issue of why it's blue and a circle aside for a moment, can't we all agree that a symbol that speaks for itself is better than having to pin the word "DIABETES" on your lapel? I was especially surprised to discover that folks from the local chapter of the ADA (American Diabetes Association) weren't at all familiar with the blue circle campaign. I sort of forgave them for it last year, since it was still very new then, but now I'm thinking that that group — and this country at large, which doesn't play up World Diabetes Day a fraction as much as the rest of the world — may be suffering from some classic "not invented here syndrome." When you go to the ADA's website right now, for example, you see "American Diabetes Month," but nada on WDD. I hereby proclaim this Call to Action for next year's WDD: Let's do it up, right, America! And that means you, ADA! And that means you, Mainstream Media! This awareness campaign is gaining traction, with the likes of T1 rockstar Nick Jonas on board, but it seems like we have a long way to go to catch up with the Brits, the Germans, or the Australians, for example. And now for the Why Blue? And Why a Circle? I know from my previous research that this symbol was the brainchild of Kari Rosenfeld Continue reading >>

Awareness Ribbons Chart: Color And Meaning Of Awareness Ribbon Causes

Awareness Ribbons Chart: Color And Meaning Of Awareness Ribbon Causes

A - A + Main Document Quote: "Because many awareness ribbon colors may have multiple associated meanings, Disabled World is listing only awareness ribbons regarding health and disability meanings and causes." The use of various colored ribbons is designed to create public awareness to health, medical conditions, disability, and other issues. An awareness ribbon is defined as a piece of colored ribbon folded across itself creating a loop shape - or a representation of such. Today, the meaning of colored awareness ribbons are used globally as a way for wearers of the ribbon(s) to make a statement of support for a particular cause or issue. Probably the two most well-known awareness ribbons are; the red ribbon in support of those with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); and the pink ribbon which denotes breast cancer awareness. The meaning behind the awareness ribbon depends on its color(s). Many different groups, foundations and organizations have adopted these ribbons as symbols of support or awareness - as a result, various causes may often share the same, or similar, ribbon color(s). How many awareness ribbons are there? This is a question we get asked quite often. With new awareness campaign days, weeks, and months - as well as new ribbon colors, constantly being created, we are not sure how many awareness ribbon colors there currently are - but there certainly seems to be a lot! We currently have over 80 different ribbon colors and designs listed below. Awareness Ribbon Color Meanings Jump to Ribbon Color: 9/11 - This ribbon is a sign of mourning for those lost in the September 11th (9/11) attack.

World Diabetes Day And The History Of The Blue Circle

World Diabetes Day And The History Of The Blue Circle

We all know November is Diabetes awareness month, and November 14th is “World Diabetes Day.” But what is the meaning of the “blue circle” and why do we celebrate and advocate for diabetes so much this month? I asked Keegan Hall, the President of the Young Leaders in Diabetes Program, to talk a bit about the history. Many causes and conditions have a colored ribbon to symbolize the cause. In the diabetes community, we have done something very different—a blue circle. The blue circle is the universal symbol for diabetes. Until 2006, there was no global symbol for diabetes. The purpose of the symbol is to give diabetes a common identity. It aims to: Support all existing efforts to raise awareness about diabetes Inspire new activities, bring diabetes to the attention of the general public Brand diabetes Provide a means to show support for the fight against diabetes What is the history of the blue circle? The icon was originally developed for the campaign that resulted in the passage of United Nations Resolution 61/225 “World Diabetes Day.” The campaign for a United Nations Resolution on diabetes was a response to the diabetes pandemic that is set to overwhelm healthcare resources everywhere. The campaign mobilized diabetes stakeholders behind the common cause of securing a United Nations Resolution on diabetes. The United Nations passed Resolution 61/225 ‘World Diabetes Day’ on December 20, 2006. Why a circle? The circle occurs frequently in nature and has thus been widely employed since the dawn of humankind. The significance is overwhelmingly positive. Across cultures, the circle can symbolize life and health. Most significantly for the campaign, the circle symbolizes unity. Our combined strength is the key element that made this campaign so special. The Continue reading >>
