What is the color ribbon for Hodgkin's Lymphoma? 

Violet or lime green?


Violet was chosen to be the color to represent Hodgkin's Lymphoma by the website CureHodgkin's and the Violet Ribbon Campaign in 2001.   However, the color lime green also represents all lymphomas including both Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  There have been a few debates as to which color to wear to represent Hodgkin's Lymphoma, but the consensus is that both violet or lime green can represent Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  It is a personal choice, although violet has become very popular with Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivors who prefer their own color be represented and to also respectfully honor the Violet Ribbon Campaign founded by the late Matthew Terry.

Winter 2007 Benefit

Shelley and her best friend, Rachel put together
a benefit for me in December 2007. Along with local artists,
jewelers, shops, and friends the benefit turned out very nice.
A silent auction was held during the dinner. I was unable to
attend as I couldn't be in public
Unfortunately,that evening
was a big snowstorm but many still braved the roads
and came out to support me.Truly beautiful.
