Don’t miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to crawl through the Colossal Colon when it comes to a city near you in 2003. The 40-ft. long replica of the human colon is on the road, courtesy of the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation, to raise awareness of early detection and prevention of colorectal cancer.
Visitors who crawl through the 4-ft. wide colon or look through the viewing windows will see healthy colon tissue, Crohn’s disease, diverticulosis, ulcerative colitis, polyps and various stages of colon cancer.
Increase your knowledge of colorectal cancer facts and win prizes! At the end of the Colossal Colon experience, you make a pledge to talk with your family, friends and doctor about the disease, not just about crawling through the colon …
The Colossal Colon is the latest and most extreme example of a traditon of health awareness campaigns employing gargantuan organs — including walk-thru hearts, monolithic teeth, and looming bloodshot eyeballs.
