Unconfirmed Ribbons we are currently researching:

In order to avoid duplication and errors in our guide to awareness ribbons, we research and confirm all submitted ribbons before posting them. This has helped us provide the most comprehensive and accurate listing possible for the past seven years. If you have a cause listed below, it means it has been submitted, but we have not received a definitive answer from a charity etc. that its actually in use. These are subject to change, but I think its safe to wear one or a general color if you like since a ribbon is only as good as the person wearing it (and their willingness to educate others)

Anal Cancer = Pink and Purple?

Craniosynostosis = Green?
