Survivors, family members, care-givers and supporter of the cancer fight are now wearing it around the globe, especially during October, which has been declared 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' in many countries.

Many other ribbons have appeared since then, each color associated with a specific type of cancer as outlined in this document.
