Awareness ribbons and medical IDs: A color for every condition


blue awareness ribbonPeople often want to wear the colors associated with their conditions. For example, here at Lauren's Hope, we receive messages from people with Multiple Sclerosis asking for more orange bracelets and from people with Addison's Disease asking for more light blue bracelets. People with Epilepsy request purple, as do those with lupus and fibromyalgia. Wearing the color associated with one's condition is an empowering choice, one that helps people raise awareness in a positive, intentional way.

What Color Is Associated With My Condition?

Looking for a little "cheat sheet"? We've got you covered. Here's a breakdown of some of the more common medical conditions and their associated awareness ribbon colors.

Red: HIV/AIDS, Vasculitis, Heart Disease, Oral Cancers, and Multiple MyelomaCrush medical alert bracelet

Orange: Leukemia, Multiple Sclerosis, ADHD, Muscular Dystrophy, and Kidney Cancer

Yellow: Bone Cancer, Endometriosis, 

Green: Hepatitis B, Liver Cancer, Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Gastroparesis, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Cerebral Palsy, Celiac Disease, Lyme Disease, Organ Transplants, Organ Donation, Kidney Cancer, and Mental Health

Blue: Dysautonomia, Transverse Myelitis, Tuberous Sclerosis, Colon Cancer, Hydranencephaly, Huntington's Disease, Prostate Cancer (light blue), Graves Disease (light blue), Genetic Disorders, Addison's Disease, and ArthritisMedical ID plaque

Purple: Gynecological Cancers, Testicular Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, General Cancer Awareness, Epilepsy, Crohn's Disease, Colitis, Migraines, Sarcoidosis, Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Peripheral Neuropathy, Alzheimer's, Pulmonary Hypertension, Esophageal and Stomach Cancer

Pink: Breast Cancer

White: Lung Cancer

Gray: Asthma, Brain Cancer, and Diabetes (T1D is also associated with blue ribbons and blue circles.)

Gold: Childhood Cancers

Some conditions use patterns and color combinations, particularly when they're done as ribbons. For example, Autism ribbons have multi-colored puzzle pieces on them, and Type One Diabetes is sometimes blue and sometimes has one grey half, one blue half, and a red blood droplet. Cervical cancer is teal and white, while Rheumatoid Arthritis is a two-tone blue and purple blend.

When designing our medical alert bracelets, we endeavor not only to create beautiful styles that appeal on an aesthetic level, but also to develop bracelets that help you show the world what's important to you. It's one of the reasons we also have lots of different colors of medical ID dog tags and a rainbow of custom-engravable medical alert tags: so you can go loud and proud and raise awareness while staying safe in style. 

Do you wear a special color for your condition? What color combinations would you like to see us make more of? We want to hear from you! 



You forgot blue for arthritis!
