Rolanda the Inflatable Colon

A FUN AND EDUCATIONAL JOURNEY FOR COLON CANCER AWARENESs

 
 

Rolanda is a 20-foot long, 12-foot wide and 10-foot high Inflatable Colon. Visitors can walk through the inflatable colon to get a close-up look at healthy colon tissues, tissue with non-malignant colorectal diseases, and tissue with various stages of colorectal cancer. All signs are in English and Spanish.

Rolanda is a regular at our Rollin’ to Colon and Boxer 500 events, and would love to come visit your special event to help promote colon cancer screening. In 2014, Rolanda visited 10 different locations through the state of Nebraska helping communities get out the word about the importance of scheduling regular colon screenings.
