We are GOLD in September for kids with cancer

Gold Ribbon Facts

  • The gold ribbon was created by former Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation (CCCF) board member Gigi Thorsen and other parents of children with cancer.
  • The color gold was selected because gold is a precious metal and children are as precious as gold.
  • The first production of the gold ribbon was in the form of a lapel pin, funded by CCCF in 1997. 
  • The gold ribbon doesn't just represent one form of cancer. It is an awareness symbol for all forms of cancer that affect children and adolescents.
  • This international symbol is supported and recognized by many organizations, but it is not widely recognized by the public.
