Awareness ribbon/color for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma?

Ok, regular readers know that I am not into the whole awareness ribbon/color thing to show support for cancer of any kind (the link goes to my good friend Jeanne's blog entries on boycott October). Others are, though, (Hi Sara C.!) and as a good librarian I have gone hunting to see if anyone has designed a ribbon or designated a color for ACC.

Oral, head, neck cancer has one, and makes pins and bracelets available for purchase on the SPOHNC site:  https://www.spohnc.org/enamel_pins.php . But if your ACC was diagnosed in a different part of your body, this one won't do. And you may not want to have the breast/lung/other location cancer ribbon to signify this very unique type of cancer. So I figure the color and theme topic is up for grabs for our brand of cancer, folks.

If someone was going to design one for ACC, I hope they follow the lead of the Live Like Andi Foundation, and make it leopard/cheetah print - in Andi's words, that IS a color!

If you or someone you know does designate a color or type of ribbon for ACC, please let me know.

Hi T,

Checking in- hope your are well. You sound like your are doing well. Wanted to let you know that we have selected May 2, 2009 for the Live Like Andi Foundation 2nd Annual Walk for Hope for ACC. I will forward a flier that you could post. Last year we donated over $60,000 directly to ACC research. We are so proud of this. Our website will be updated in two weeks. I will let you know when its up. Can you help me get the word out? We hope to have 2-3,000 walkers & runners (had 1,000 last year). We want to highlight our ACC heroes and their families and raise $100,000. Any ideas how we can get as many ACC fighters and their families to the event? Stay in touch! Mike O'Connell, Director The Live like Andi Foundation...Believe in Miracles!
