Medical Inflatables for Colon Cancer Awareness Month
Colon Cancer Awareness Month
The month of March is most famously known for being the month that has St. Patrick’s Day. Many people don’t know that March is also Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colon cancer is one of the top three cancers that cause the highest amount of deaths each year. Therefore, educating people on this type of cancer and how to prevent and fight it is the key to saving the lives on thousands of individuals each year. Since Colon Cancer Awareness Month is supported by wearing the color blue, sponsored 5Ks to raise donations and many other events anyone can help the cause to fight colon cancer. Colon cancer affects 1 in 22 men and 1 in 24 women. It is diagnosed in more than 100,000 Americans every year.
Inflatable Design Group created an inflatable colon to show a larger than life example of what the colon is and what colon cancer is. The inflatable has a complete walk through tunnel of the human colon. It features a 3-D cancerous polyp within the colon so viewers can see where and what the cancer looks like. The colon inflatable is an interesting and new way to learn about colon cancer. Medical inflatables create lasting impressions on viewers. Being able to touch and see the colon and the cancer help people understand what is happening inside the body. Our medical inflatables travel the United States educating people on the health risks they face.
Prevention & Screenings
Screenings for colon cancer are recommended for those who are over 50 years of age or have a family history of colon cancer. Colon cancer screenings could prevent about 60 percent of the deaths every year. There are six colon cancer screening tests that are guaranteed to be covered by insurance, but one in three people are not up to date with their colon cancer screenings. So, it is crucial to take the time to get a screening in order to protect your health. Prevention is the first step to living a healthy, cancer free life. Interactive medical inflatables from Inflatable Design Group are the first step to education and prevention of many forms of cancer. So, keep yourself healthy and safe by educating yourself on the health risks you face.
