Whats the ribbon color for Hodgkin's Disease?

Postby gower » Wed Apr 06, 2011 1:12 am

I was just diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and can't really find the color for the ribbon. I know lime green is generally used for lymphomas and Hodgkin's seems to be violet, but i'm not very sure. Any help would be excellent. Thanks

It's violet. Here is "The Violet Ribbon" website for Hodgkin's disease awareness.

God bless.

Hodgkin lymphoma is a localized or disseminated malignant proliferation of cells of the lymphoreticular system, primarily involving lymph node tissue, spleen, liver, and bone marrow. Symptoms include painless lymphadenopathy, sometimes with fever, night sweats, unintentional weight loss, pruritus, splenomegaly, and hepatomegaly. Diagnosis is based on lymph node biopsy. Treatment is curative in about 75% of cases and consists of chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy.
Please see the web pages for more details on Hodgkin lymphoma.
