What is the correct color for a leukemia awareness ribbon?
My cousin died of leukemia last year at age two and we are going on the Light the Night walk this year so I wanted to make a special shirt/some tribute art for leukemia awareness.
Now, I have researched the possible colors but can't find a definite answer. I have read that colors can range from purple, orange, lime green, and striped red-and-white for leukemia.
Could anybody please shed some light on which color would be the correct color to use?
I think she had some form of lymphoma also, and I'm not sure if that factors into the decision of a color choice.
Can anyone help? This means a lot to my family and I and I would like the answer to be as accurate as possible.

The "color" for Lukemia awareness bracelets and the like is orange.
Lymphoma's "color" is green.

Great Question, I don't know if the drivers do (wear colored ribbons for cervical cancer awareness), but I think teal/green would look great as a paint scheme on some drivers cars. I am glad you made it through your ordeal with cervical cancer and are alive! You are a great friend (with great avatars too) and y/a nascar section would be lost with out you. I remember the pink breast cancer cars from September and a lot of crew and drivers wore pink ribbons. (Sadler and Kyle Busch had the best pink paint scheme cars I think)
