Tour a giant colon

A giant 12-foot replica of a colon will be on display in Gundersen's Legacy Building, Lower Level, on March 2. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you can walk through the inflatable colon to get an up-close look at polyps, precancerous lesions and colon cancer. There will be information about screening guidelines as well as the benefits of early detection.

Get screened!

Beginning at age 50, both men and women should have a screening for colorectal cancer. People with a family history of colorectal cancer, or who have inflammatory bowel disease, should have earlier and more frequent screenings. Talk to your primary care provider about your options.

The Colon Cancer Alliance first launched the National Dress in Blue Day program in 2009 to bring national attention to colon cancer and to celebrate the courage of those affected by the disease. Today, individuals, businesses and community groups across the country participate in National Dress in Blue Day by wearing blue and encouraging others to do the same.
