Adrenocortical Carcinoma Cancer - Green Cancer Ribbons
Green Cancer Ribbons for Adrenocortical Carcinoma Awareness
Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare tumor that affects only 0.72 persons per one million population. Although it mainly occurs in adults, children can be affected, too. Historically, only about 30% of these malignancies are confined to the adrenal gland at the time of diagnosis. However, recently, more ACCs have been diagnosed at early stages, most likely due to the widespread use of high-quality imaging techniques.

Astrocytomas, Childhood (Brain Cancer) Cancer - Gold or Gray Cancer Ribbons
Gold Cancer Ribbons or Gray Cancer Ribbons for Childhood Astrocytomas (Brain Cancer) Awareness
Astrocytomas are tumors that start in star-shaped brain cells called astrocytes. An astrocyte is a type of glial cell. Glial cells hold nerve cells in place, bring food and oxygen to them, and help protect them from disease, such as infection. Astrocytoma is the most common type of glioma diagnosed in children. It can form anywhere in the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). Brain and spinal cord (also known as central nervous system, or CNS) tumors can be benign or malignant.
Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor, Childhood, Central Nervous System (Brain Cancer) Cancer - Gold or Gray Cancer Ribbons
Gold Cancer Ribbons or Gray Cancer Ribbons for Childhood Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumor (Brain Cancer) Awareness
Brain and spinal cord (also known as central nervous system, or CNS) tumors can be benign or malignant. Central nervous system (CNS) atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a very rare, fast-growing tumor of the brain and spinal cord. It usually occurs in children aged three years and younger, although it can occur in older children and adults. About half of these tumors form in the cerebellum or brain stem.
