LOL! Boy do I know what you mean about this ribbon business. I have vaginal cancer, and like anal cancer, there is no ribbon. We supposedly have a rare cancer, that's probably why. In my mind I've made "cranberry" my ribbon color of choice, as well as the purple. I love that color as well.
Hi Ruth-- I don't have any real good suggestion for a ribbon color. This topic has been discussed by many of my fellow anal cancer bloggers, here and elsewhere, but so far, nothing decided. I say why not do something totally off the wall and make it out of an animal print! You know, like leopard spots or tiger stripes. Those are two feisty creatures not to be messed around with, and I think all of us going through this disease are feisty too! It's a requirement to get through this grueling tx. I'm glad you are doing remarkably well this far into your tx. I'm sure there are days when you don't feel up to much, but that's to be expected. I hope Monday will go well for you and that your 2nd. round of chemo will not give you anything but minimal side effects. At least you will have that over with before Christmas and hopefully, feeling better by then. Take care and keep us posted. Happy decorating! In my thoughts and prayers as always-- Martha

I third what Martha and Kim think about the animal print.....LOL All I know is we definately deserve "OUR OWN COLOR"! Nancy
Wishing you the best in this stage of your treatment- I am glad to hear you are still doing fairly well. I am now through week one and have the chemo bag off. Mary
I also have just been diagnosed with lovely anal carcinoma and found out that we fall into the "Brown" ribbon cancer category.....what rocket scientist put us there?!?!? So I have decided to officially change it to "CHOCOLATE" ribbon cancer. I have all my nurses at radiation wearing Chocolate ribbons and supporting me...its a hoot!! We are going to have a "Chocolate Ball" and "Run for Chocolate".......possibilities are endless. God love our sisters with the "pink" ribbon cancer, but lordy, do they have to have all the accessories and a cute color to boot!! I say.....Go CHOCOLATE!!!
I am down with brown, purple, and yellow. I'm post treatment, 6 months out and two thumbs up (just be careful where). Doctors said I can have my pick line pulled out. I can actually sit on a bicycle seat for a couple of hours!!!! Thank God, for modern medicine, prayers, and painkillers.
I'm down with brown. Maybe brown and yellow and purple.Sign in or sign up to post a comment.
