PROMISE


What is a Colonoscopy?

 
Cancer Education
The Sanford Cancer Center would like to help you raise awareness in your organization! We would like to extend your business or organization an opportunity to have the Sanford Inflatable SemiColon at your location. The inflatable SemiColon is a great visual tool to show why we should get screened for Colorectal Cancer and what can happen if we don't.

The Semicolon is 8' tall, 11' wide, and 28' long. As you walk through the colon, it describes the stages of normal colon tissue, polyps, early cancer and advanced cancer in both English and Spanish. NEW: We have also made audio available for other languages so they can listen to audio while doing a visual tour of the colon. We have audio available for the following Languages: Spanish, Nepali, Kunama, Arabic, and Kayah.

Please contact Shannon Park at Shannon.Park@Sanfordhealth.org or by phone at 605-328-6064 for more details or to schedule the Sanford SemiColon in your location!
