Our giant inflatable colon is touring the U.S. yet again this March for Colon Cancer Awareness Month! We’re proud to partner with Bayer Healthcare LLC for the second consecutive year in this nationwide initiative to spread colon cancer awareness in a fun and exciting way. And there’s no better way to spread lifesaving information than with this attention-getter, featuring various stages of disease (normal colon tissue, Crohn’s Disease, polyp, malignant polyp, colon cancer & advanced colon cancer). 

"We thank Bayer Healthcare for this opportunity and for the positive difference the colon tour makes in each community - an interactive, fun way to get the word out about colon cancer education and prevention," says Martha Raymond, our Vice President of Programs.picstitch (1)
