    Do we have SCI colors?

    Do we have a color scheme for our cause, like breast cancer is pink? What color are our bracelets? I ask because one of my wonderful new caregivers – inspired by attending things with me and meeting Wise and Patricia – is thinking of knitting something for us to sell.

            It appears as though it depends on where you look. Here are some websites that link spinal cord injury with these awareness colors:

            Green for Spinal Cord Injury:

            Dark Blue for Spinal Cord Injury: http://www.bumperstickermagnet.com/a...-research.html

            Medium Blue for Cure Paralysis:

            Various other websites mentioned these same colors.

            Here is an archived thread from Care Cure Community:
            /forum/archive/index.php/t-155137.html

            So...what color do you use?

            All the best,
            GJ

                Pretty much sums up my SCI experience.

                  Actually that’s pretty accurate. In anatomical atlases and drawings the nervous system with its peripheral nerves often use yellow color. Like for the circulatory system arteries are highlighted with red and veins with blue color.

                      Any rubber bracelet I have seen has been light bluish. They come from the organization sponsoring an event. As GJ pointed out there's no consensus.
                      Maybe check with the Reeve foundation?

                            I called the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and as far as the woman who answered the phone knows, we have no colors, but she's going to ask someone to call me to let me know if that's in the works.

                            I think we should pick some colors to propose if nothing is percolating at the moment. I wonder if you all would let me nix brown and yellow. I'm kind of partial to purple. Purple and black?

                              I got a call back that indeed it is blue, though of unknown depth.
