Colon cancer kills more than 50,000 people per year.
A giant colon set up in a Canadian mall over the weekend aimed to bring awareness to the seriousness of colon cancer.
Sponsored by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, Regional Cancer Progams and the Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada, this interactive display allowed spectators to walk through a colon and listen to messages about cancer on television screens.
Was this kid-friendly? Rachel McDougall brought her three children, aged 4, 5 and 7, to see the display.
"The kids were keen to walk through an intestine," McDougall told The Record, noting that she encourages her children to learn about "anything that is scientific and educational."
