If you've driven through downtown Marblehead recently, you've seen the blue ribbons.

They're attached to practically everything - cars, mailboxes, trees and a host of local businesses.

Here's a little more information about the amazing reason they're popping up all over the place, from a flyer recently posted online:

Please consider joining the Marblehead community in support of Megan and her family by tying a blue ribbon or bow anywhere on your property that is visible from the road.

Why blue? 

Blue is Megan's favorite color and is often associated with hope. It also symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom and confidence...words that can be used to describe Megan.

Megan is a resident of Marblehead and attends the Marblehead Community Charter Public School. Less than a year ago, Megan was diagnosed with a rare childhood cancer known as Osteosarcoma. The family would appreciate your prayers, love and support to get through this incredibly difficult time. If you like to participate, please display a light blue or turquoise ribbon.
