Color The Sky

Each day at the intersection of Virginia and Missouri, just outside the offices of the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation, the multi-colored flag representing all the colors of cancer is proudly displayed. “Coloring the Sky”, the flag serves as a reminder of those who are voyaging through cancer and in tribute to those whose journey has ended.

If you would like to “color the sky” in honor of or in tribute to someone, simply call our offices at (915) 562-7660 or send us an email with the information listed below.
