Colon Club rolls out new colorectal awareness project with toilet paper Thursday, March 15, 2007 at 12:16 PM
The Colon Club has launched a new Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer campaign with actual rolls of toilet paper printed with information about colon and rectal cancer.The rolls are available in both travel and full sizes from the Colon Club web site. The travel rolls have the message on the label, but full-size rolls have information printed on every sheet.
Hannah Vogler, Co-Founder of the Colon Club says, Everyone has to use toilet paper sometime! The Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer toilet paper is just another way for us to educate people about colorectal cancer. The regular size rolls can be used on any standard toilet paper rod, and the travel rolls are so portable that you can carry them around and give them away.
Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer is dedicated to thirty-one-year old Paula Ries from Mount Vernon, Indiana. Paula was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer last year, which has now spread to her pancreas. The Colon Club raises awareness of colorectal cancer in innovative and entertaining ways including the Colossal Colon and the Colondar, which features young models who have had colon or rectal cancer baring their scars for the camera.
