Our National Cancer Prevention Tour

Posted on February 28, 2014

Our giant inflatable colon is touring the U.S. this March for Colon Cancer Awareness Month! We’re proud to partner with Bayer Healthcare LLC in this nationwide initiative to spread colon cancer awareness across the country in a fun and unique 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). 

Join us at one of the many stops along the Colon Cancer Alliance National Cancer Prevention Tour, sponsored by Bayer Healthcare LLC. The tour continues throughout 2014, so we will update tour stops on a monthly basis. Here’s where we’ll be stopping this month! Check out our Blue Star Calendar for more event details.

    Hi, I am on the board of directors for the voices of Rhode Island chapter of Colon Cancer Alliance, we are having our 6th Annual walk on August 3rd, 2014. We expect a big turn out as usual for our walk, I was wondering if it was possible to get the giant inflatable colon for this day.

    Thank you for your time.

    We would love to have the Giant Colon on display at our Community STEM Day event. This FREE event is a partnership between Newport News Public Schools and Christopher Newport University. Any information you can provide about how to include the colon would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you,

    Hi! I’m working with the Colon Cancer Coalition to organize a 5K run/walk in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in October. Would it be possible to have use the inflatable colon for our walk?

    Thanks in advance!

  5. Angie Smith says:

    Any chance that the big inflatable colon could come to Illinois, especially downstate IL (Havana, IL). Would love to bring this to our county/community since we have a high incidence of colon cancer in this area.

  6. Hello,

    We are interested in holding a cancer awareness event in st Helena, Ca, on March 19, 2016. Would it be possible to rent your inflatable colon for this event?

    Thank you,
    Linda Williams
