Default Ribbon Colors for different Cancers

A while back someone posted the list of what color ribbons signify different types of cancers. We know pink is for breast cancer. Is there a color for uterine cancer? Thanks.

Emily, many thanks. I just got a note tonight that a very good friend of mine has been diagnosed. Now I know what color to incorporate for her first Get Well card. Have a wonderful weekend. Kathy

Thanks so much for the website. My husband was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer and a friend's husband with brain cancer. I hope to make some 'hope' cards and can use these colors. I appreciate it!

TGG- An awesome job in summarizing what these colors represent. I believe I had seen your previous note but I didn't need the information at that time. Hugs!
