Everyone knows that pink ribbons represent breast cancer awareness. But did you know the color of MS awareness? Yes, it’s orange! (A color, I should add, that it shares with leukemia and kidney cancer, as well.)
At Walk MS, there is a sea of orange-clad people walking the bridges of downtown Portland. Lately, the orange has been spiced up with the addition of a bright lime green, which I love.
Hopefully, someday soon, those orange ribbons will be as ubiquitous as the pink ones, and MS research will really take off. And hopefully, in the very near future, cures will be found, and neither of these ribbons will be needed.
