Beyond having more cancer merchandise in the market for more ribbons/diagnoses, having the four different colors represented on one sock has the potential for unity amongst the blood cancers. My hope is that this becomes a successful business premise, so I can expand to categorizing and uniting multiple groups of cancer diagnosis (so far I have brainstormed cancers impacting women, men and soft tissue (sarcoma)). Please feel free to comment with feedback and suggestions to help make this a successful business.
