Ribbons for everything

But did you know that an orchid ribbon represents awareness of testicular cancer; a teal ribbon represents ovarian cancer and substance abuse; and a green ribbon represents bone marrow donation, childhood depression, environment, Lyme’s disease, organ donation, tissue donation, and/or worker safety?
