What Does Wearing An Awareness Ribbon Mean?

Wearing awareness ribbons are very fashionable today and it also sends a subtle message that you are supporting a cause or raising awareness for a particular cancer or cause. People often wear an awareness ribbon because a loved one close to them was afflicted or are personally connected to a certain cause.

These types of ribbons vary in sizing and are created in a criss-cross fashion. You may find them with or without personalization on each side of the ribbon.  It is fastened with a miniature safety pin on the upper part of a garment. The ribbons are available in a variety of colors, with each color depicting a specific cancer or cause.  

The ribbon is usually worn on the left chest or over the heart, which is symbolic for a cause that is close to the heart. 

When a person dies from cancer, the surviving family members may order a ribbon associated with his or her death. Wearing it in unison at a funeral or memorial service shows support for finding a cure and hope for beating the disease.

If you are not sure what color a certain cause represents, there are color charts available online as well as on The Funeral Program Site.  Ribbon colors can be found in solids, dual-color, tri-colors, and even patterns representative to the cause. If you want to start your own cause or ribbon color, we are also able to make custom awareness ribbons for you.
