    "The colour RED"

      The colour red is the life that flows through us. We use it to express the most intense emotions and the most important messages to others. The universal symbol for a disease that kills so many people every year and affects the lives of many more uses a single red symbol. Wearing a red ribbon is one thing, being affected by the disease is quite another.
