The Colon Club

My initial reaction to the Colon Club website was to snicker like a ten year old at their traveling exhibit, The Colossal Colon or laugh at mascots dressed like a polyp and an enema bag.

But after finding out more about the founder, Molly McMaster, a colon cancer survivor who created the organization to raise awareness, I must say I wanted to smack myself in the mouth for being so glib.

This is one really brave lady who has the audacity to draw attention to this serious  illness with her own brand of self-deprecating humor.

For instance, one of their fundraising activities is the 2009 "Colonder" that features different survivors each month.

You go Molly!
