The Colon Club has “rolled out” our own line of tp in our characteristic non-traditional style, this time asking people to “Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer” by using TOILET PAPER! Our innovative toilet paper includes the “Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer” message as well as facts and information about colorectal cancer. It is available in travel size rolls with printed labels and standard size rolls with the message printed directly on the paper.
We first had this idea several years ago and decided to unveil it in 2007 after teaming up with Ohio Valley Colon & Rectal Surgeons in Evansville, IN. We found out that they had been handing out TP wrapped with a similar message, and so we decided to work together on this project! We announced it at their Colossal Colon® event in Evansville on March 9, 2007.
Wipe Out Colorectal Cancer is dedicated to Mount Vernon, IN native Paula Ries. Paula was diagnosed at the age of 30 with stage III colon cancer, and is currently fighting a recurrence to her pancreas. She posed as Miss April in The Colon Club’s 2008 Colondar.
