What color is the ribbon for breast cancer awareness?
In 1990 people for the first time came across the notion of the "red ribbon" which is known as the symbol for AIDS awareness. Just a year or two later, the focus was shifted to the ribbon of another color – to the pink one. Soon, women all around the world became alert to the problem of breast cancer and its consequences.
This color of the ribbon reminds every woman of her nature and delicacy but also symbolizes the fear of breast cancer. Thus, if you wear the pink ribbon, you show your respect and support for the brave women who go on fighting against the disease and at the same time you help to increase awareness among women. It's highly important that every woman should have regular breast examinations in order to prevent the disease or detect it at the initial stage.
