What is the color symbol for rectal cancer?

Good morning, I'm sorry to bother you with such a trivial question, our Office Manager was diagnosed with Rectal Cancer, the surgery was a success and they feel they have gotten, she is in the process of the chemo and in 2 weeks she will be taking her last treatment. We here at work would like to support/celebrate that and were wanting to wear the color symbol of Rectal Cancer, however i cannot seem to find it, is it the Dark Blue same as Colon Cancer or no? If now would you please be so kind as to let me know the color? Thank you so much and have a blessed day.

Hi and welcomet to HCM.
Yes.this is dark blue as colon because this is the same type of cancer and it is even oftenly hard to distinguish left colon and rectum. I am sure you ll suprise her and give enough support to continue fighting with this serious disease. But just dont hurry with celebration until the whole treatment is over. Wish you good luck.
