Thanks to our Ribbon Crafters

At Cancer Services, with the help of our volunteers, we are able to create and share a series of colored ribbons that represent all of the different kinds of cancer. Cancer survivors and their family members across the region receive these ribbons at our events to signify the community support that is available to them through others who understand the cancer journey.

The ribbons generate a sense of kinship for clients to understand that they are not alone. Through Cancer Services and the community’s support, people fighting cancer are able to experience hope and compassion from their friends and neighbors.

Thanks to all of our volunteers who help to make this possible. With each and every one of our ribbon crafters, we are able to create an over-arching awareness for cancer along with providing a significant support community.
