Teal and Butterflies: My Cancer Symbols
The symbol our society is most familiar with is the breast cancer pink ribbon, yet there are several cancer symbols out there: every cancer has its own colored awareness ribbon. A tricolor ribbon of teal, pink, and blue represents thyroid cancer. It’s a rbbon my fellow survivors and I are proud to wear. Every day, I wear at least one teal thyroid cancer awareness ribbon, and recently, I even had my toes painted a glittery teal to show solidarity for a friend of mine dealing with a thyroid cancer recurrence.
