Cancer bracelets offer a way to show support for those in their fight against cancer. At Wristband Resources, we take great pride in having a part in throwing amazing fundraising events that generate awareness for different types of cancer. Many charitable organizations use cancer bracelets to raise money for the causes they support. You have probably seen pink wristbands during the month of October to raise awareness for breast cancer. However, this is not the only type of cancer awareness bracelet.
Cancer Bracelet Colors
PINK (BREAST CANCER)
Pink is the color of Breast Cancer Awareness, one of the most recognizable cancer support colors. Pink has been used for breast cancer since 1990. This has been a nearly 30-year-old design concept, and something that will instantly pop for any wearer. Breast cancer is also one of the most ubiquitous killers, with over 42,000 Americans dying every year from the disease. This is why breast cancer awareness bracelets are so important in our fight to get this number as close to 0 as possible. Personalize breast cancer bracelets to support someone you know today.
TEAL (CERVICAL and OVARIAN CANCER)
Teal represents cervical and ovarian cancer, two female-specific cancers that kill over 10,000 people a year combined. These diseases have a 90% chance of survival rate if detected early. This is why awareness is so key. You can help raise knowledge through personalized teal ovarian cancer awareness bracelets and cervical cancer bracelets!
WHITE (LUNG CANCER)
White is the color used for lung cancer awareness. This cancer kills more people worldwide than any other cancer. In fact, one in every four cancer deaths comes from lung cancer. Wearing white cancer bracelets shows solidarity for the survivors of the disease and helps show support for those in treatment.
BLACK (SKIN CANCER)
Skin cancer awareness is represented by the color black. Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers. 1 in 5 Americans will develop some type of skin cancer in their lifetime. Make sure that you're using the kind of sunscreen and skin protection needed to keep yourself safe. Furthermore, raise awareness by wearing black wristbands.
FOREST GREEN (LIVER CANCER)
Liver cancer awareness is represented using dark green cancer bracelets. Liver cancer is the 10th most common kind of cancer, with 40,000 adults being diagnosed a year. It is remarkably deadly, however–28,000+ people die from this cancer each year. However, with early detection, liver cancer can be beaten. Raise awareness today!
LIGHT BLUE (PROSTATE CANCER)
Light blue is the color used by prostate cancer awareness campaigns. Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers that impact men exclusively. Like many other forms of cancer, early detection is key. When detected in the local stage, its survival rate is nearly 100% - wear light blue cancer bracelets to help remind those around you to get tested early and often!
GREY (BRAIN CANCER)

LAVENDER (TESTICULAR CANCER)
Testicular cancer is linked to the color lavender. Roughly 9,000 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer this year, and the rate of diagnosis is only growing. However, the survival rate for this cancer is an extremely high 95%. Wear testicular cancer bracelets to show your support!
PEACH (UTERINE CANCER)
Peach is the color used in uterine cancer awareness campaigns, which affects over 62,000 women every year. It is the sixth most common cancer in women and is much more dangerous if not detected early. In fact, late-stage uterine cancer has a survival rate of about 17%.

PURPLE (PANCREATIC CANCER)
Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer. Out of the 53,000 or so people each year that will receive a pancreatic cancer diagnosis, 41,000 will die from the disease. There is no easy way to reliably diagnose even stage 1 cancer. Even at its earliest detection, the survival rate hovers at an extremely low 27%. By making those around you aware of this disease, we can all more quickly recognize the symptoms and get tested.
LIGHT BLUE (STOMACH CANCER)
Stomach cancer is linked to a whitish-blue color. Stomach cancer claims the lives of over 10,000 Americans a year and has a relatively low survival rate of 30%. Survival is heavily contingent on being detected early before it spreads outside the stomach. This white-blue band helps generate awareness on the need to test for the disease early and often!
GREEN (LYMPH NODE CANCER)

Lymphoma is much easier to spot due to swelling of lymph nodes on the body. Our bright green lymphoma awareness bracelets will attract attention and help create discussion!
ORANGE (KIDNEY CANCER)
Kidney cancer is represented by orange. The sixth most common kind of cancer, it is a disease that is becoming easier to diagnose and treat every year. Although 15,000 people each year die from kidney cancer, we can get that number closer to 0 with the right testing and preventive measures. Help generate awareness with orange cancer bracelets!
YELLOW (BONE and BLADDER CANCER)
Bone and bladder cancer awareness bracelets are both the color yellow. Bone cancer lies in relative obscurity, with only 3,250 people being affected per year. It is one of the least deadly cancers, with a 5-year survival rate of 80%. Bone cancer often happens when other cancers spread to the bone and cause havoc throughout the body. Bladder cancer, on the other hand, is the fourth most common kind of cancer, at 80,000 adults affected per year. 16,000 people will die due to bladder cancer each year. This relatively underexplored cancer requires more awareness and testing.
GOLDENROD (CHILDHOOD CANCER)
Childhood cancer is represented by a golden wristband. Every day in the US, 43 children receive a cancer diagnosis. Each year over 2,000 children die from a cancer in the US.
