Colors For Cancer
Support • Encourage • Inspire
Cancer ribbon colors began in the 1980's when Susan G. Komen was a small grassroots organization and needed to raise awareness for breast cancer. The pink ribbon was created as a means to bring breast cancer into the light where it could get some much-needed attention. Since 1980, the colors denoting the different cancers has grown to include them all.
We have designated the weekend of October 28th and 29th as Colors for Cancer. We invite our whole church family to wear a color to support and bring awareness to the type of cancer that has touched your life. We will have handouts and people available at Connecting Point to answer questions and provide information about the resources available at First Methodist Mansfield.
