Cancer starts when cells in the body begin to grow out of control. Cells in nearly any part of the body can become cancer, and can spread to other areas of the body.
Cancer that starts in the testicles is called testicular cancer. The testicles are made up of several types of cells, each of which can develop into one or more types of cancer. It is important to distinguish these types of cancers from one another because they differ in how they are treated and in their prognosis (outlook).
I have created a miniature awareness ribbon from tiny Delica glass beads – with orchid hued purple beads in the center – the color for Testicular Cancer, bordered in white for the hope that is always there!
The ribbon measures just about one inch tall, and is suspended on an 18″ silver-dipped chain, which closes with a lobster clasp.
A lovely way to show your support, and wear your colors! Only $12.00, and the shipping is included!
