Our giant inflatable colon is back on the road this March for Colon Cancer Awareness Month! We’re excited to partner with Bayer Healthcare again for our nationwide initiative to spread awareness, and what better way to teach people about colon cancer than with an inflatable colon that features various stages of disease (normal colon tissue, Crohn’s Disease, polyp, malignant polyp, colon cancer & advanced colon cancer)?

The BIG Colon Tour, sponsored by Bayer Healthcare, LLC., is coming to a town near you! Check out our scheduled stops and be sure to check back as we add stops throughout the year.
