The story behind the Gold Ribbon

In 1997, a group of parents whose lives were affected by childhood cancer and a board member from the American Childhood Cancer Organization (Originally the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation) chose the gold ribbon as the official symbol to encompass all types of childhood cancers. According to the ACCO’s website, the color gold was ideal as “gold is a precious metal, and is therefore the perfect color to reflect the most precious thing in our lives—our children.” (3)
The gold ribbon was designed to honor all children who have gone through or are currently undergoing cancer treatments, their families, caregivers, medical staff, and any volunteers working within the childhood cancer community.
