Alternate Color: Gold Awareness Ribbons for Enbryonal Tumors, Childhood

What are Embryonal Tumors, Central Nervous System, Childhood (Brain Cancer)?
Central Nervous System (CNS) embryonal tumors may begin in embryonic cells that remain in the brain after birth. Central nervous system CNS embryonal tumors tend to spread through the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) to other parts of the brain and spinal cord. The tumors may be malignant or benign. Most CNS embryonal tumors in children are malignant. Malignant brain tumors are likely to grow quickly and spread into other parts of the brain. When a tumor grows into or presses on an area of the brain, it may stop that part of the brain from working the way it should. Benign brain tumors grow and press on nearby areas of the brain. They rarely spread to other parts of the brain. Although cancer is rare in children, brain tumors are the second most common type of childhood cancer, after leukemia.

What is Endometriosis?
Endometriosis is an often-painful disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus, endometrium, grows outside your uterus. Endometriosis most commonly involves the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the tissue lining the pelvis. Rarely, endometrial tissue may spread beyond pelvic organs. With endometriosis, displaced endometrial tissue continues to act as it normally would, it thickens, breaks down and bleeds with each menstrual cycle. Because this displaced tissue has no way to exit the body, it becomes trapped. When endometriosis involves the ovaries, cysts called endometriomas may form. Surrounding tissue can become irritated, eventually developing scar tissue and adhesions, abnormal bands of fibrous tissue that can cause pelvic tissues and organs to stick to each other.

What is Endomyocardial Fibrosis?
Endomyocardial Fibrosis (EMF) is a progressive disease of unknown origin that may seriously affect the heart. Its most obvious feature is a gross change in the makeup of the lining of the heart cavities of one or both of the lower chambers of the heart leading to the replacement of normal cells with fibrous tissue. This process is progressive and leads to the narrowing of the right or left ventricular cavities. It may involve the valves between the chambers of the heart, as well as the tendon-like cords that fix the valves to the ventricles.

Enthesis

Enthesis Awareness Ribbon Color:

Blue Awareness Ribbons for Enthesis

What is Enthesis?
Tendons are the tissues that attach the muscles to the bones. Ligaments are what attach the bones to one another. The places where the tendons and ligaments meet the bones are called entheses. Sometimes, these connection points can get inflamed and become painful because of injury, overuse, or disease. This is known as enthesitis, also sometimes called enthesopathy. Inflammation of the entheses can cause new bone tissue to form. That new bone tissue gets in the way of normal movement and function. Enthesitis is common in some forms of arthritis, including psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, and in some children with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

Ependymoma, Adult

Ependymoma, Adult Awareness Ribbon Color:

Gray Awareness Ribbons for Ependymoma, Adult

What is Ependymoma, Adult?
The brain and spinal cord have spaces that contain cerebrospinal fluid. It is a fluid that helps protect the brain and spinal cord from injury and from infection from toxins. These spaces are called ventricles when they are located in the brain and spinal cord. An ependymoma is a rare tumor that forms from cells in the lining of these spaces.

Depending on its location and aggressiveness, an ependymoma will be classified as one of three main types:

• Classic. These are fairly well-defined tumors that usually appear in the lower part of the brain containing the cerebellum and the brain stem. They can also appear in the spinal cord or within the cerebral cortex, the upper part of the brain.

• Anaplastic. These tend to be fast-growing tumors and often indicate a poor outcome. They also tend to develop in the area of the brain that contains the cerebellum and brain stem. This part of the brain is called the posterior fossa.

• Myxopapillary Ependymoma. These tumors are more common in adults than in children. They are usually limited to the base of the spine.

Gray Awareness Ribbons for Ependymoma, Childhood
Alternate Color: Gold Awareness Ribbons for Ependymoma, Childhood

What is Ependymoma, Childhood (Brain Cancer)?
Childhood Ependymoma is a type of brain tumor. A tumor begins when healthy cells change and grow out of control, forming a mass. A tumor can be malignant or non-malignant. A malignant or cancerous tumor can grow and spread to other parts of the body. A non-malignant or benign tumor usually grows slowly but will not spread. Ependymoma is a rare, malignant brain tumor.

Ependymoma starts from radial glial cells, which are a type of cell in the brain. Even though ependymoma can occur in any part of the brain or spine, it most commonly occurs in the cerebellum. The cerebellum is the part of the brain that coordinates the body’s movements. Many times, ependymoma will block the normal flow of cerebral spinal fluid, which can lead to a condition called hydrocephalus.

Gold Awareness Ribbons for Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumors, Childhood

What is Extragonadal Germ Cell Tumors, Childhood?
Germ cells are special cells in a developing embryo, also called the fetus or unborn baby, that become the eggs in girls’ ovaries or the sperm in boys’ testicles. Rarely, during development of the embryo, these cells may also travel to other areas of the body and form a tumor. A tumor is a mass that forms when normal cells change and grow out of control. A tumor can be cancerous or benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant, meaning it can spread to other parts of the body. A benign tumor means the tumor can grow but will not spread.
