I fortunately know no one going through a cancer struggle at this time! I do have a girlfriend who's in remission from Breast Cancer and my mother passed away years ago from an inoperable cancerous lung tumor. Guess I'll go look up the colors for those.....
This card is in tribute to the members of our extended family who have died from colon cancer (blue), ovarian cancer (teal), testicular cancer (lilac)and breast cancer (pink). I am very thankful for the treatments and research being done to stamp out cancers, and both my children are planning to be doctors. Here's W is for Wonderful

I am also surprised by the numerous colors for the various types of cancer. It will be difficult to make a decision as I know several people actively dealing with cancer now. A friend just had surgery for colon cancer, one is getting treatments for lymphoma, several have breast cancer, and my deceased brother had esophageal cancer.
I've been to church, two S.S. classes, and had lunch. It is now time for a nap. I'll "sleep" on this and make a card later.

Here's mine! I used two for cancers we've lost close loved ones to, ovarian and lung cancer, and one that I blissfully have not encountered personally - childhood cancer - but I recently read an article about how little awareness it has.
Wow Misti, I never knew there were THAT many colors for cancer. I learned something new today. I chose bright blue, the color of colon cancer, as my dear sister-in-law just succumbed from this dreadful disease. Here's my card:
