There’s a colored ribbon for every cancer type. You’ve seen them. But what about the person behind the ribbon? The loved one behind the diagnosis?
We invite you to take a #Ribboning photo and make a donation to MyLifeLine.org in support of the #Ribboning movement.
How To Ribbon:
1. Take a photo of yourself in the "Ribboning" pose with your body in the shape of a cancer ribbon.
2. Post the photo to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #Ribboning and share who you are Ribboning for. For example...
"I am #Ribboning for my Aunt Barbara."
3. Invite 3 friends to join #Ribboning and donate to MyLifeLine.org.
The History of #Ribboning
MyLifeLine.org joined together with members Jen Garza and Britton Thomas for National #Ribboning Day on July 16, 2015, a day dedicated to inspiring compassion, awareness and unity for those affected by cancer. Jen and Britton are two caregivers who independently journeyed with their spouses, who lost their battles with terminal cancer in 2011 and 2012, respectively. Jen and Britton later met through connections with MyLifeLine.org and were married on National #Ribboning Day in 2015, encouraging their wedding guests to ignite the #Ribboning movement.
#Ribboning is the act of taking a photo standing in the shape of a cancer ribbon to honor all those affected by cancer, or to celebrate or memorialize someone in their lives.
