We love all the local, national, and international attention our poor #StolenColon has received, but the reality is we are A LONG way from replacing it. $4,000 is a lot of money. This colon was purchased with funds raised in Kansas City to be used in Kansas City and across the Midwest to educate about the importance of screening for colorectal cancer. The truth is we don't have the money to purchase another one of these unique educational tools. Please consider making a donation and sharing to help spread the word.
Help Replace the #StolenColon

The Kansas City (MO) Police Department has recovered the famed Stolen Colon!
The plan remains to purchase two additional colons with the money raised to continuing educating the public about the importance of colorectal cancer screening.
UPDATED OCTOBER 26, 2018
We have WONDERFUL news. Not one, but two colons will replace the #StolenColon!
Many thanks to QUEST DIAGNOSTICS and the employees at SALIX PHARMACUTICALS.
We are honored and humbled by the support we have received. Kansas City gets a new colon, and we will have another to spread awareness even further!
Shout out to the Andrew J. Samora Foundation, the Colon Cancer Foundation of Iowa, and the many individuals who also contributed to this effort.
While we are so thankful for these generous donations, THE COLON IS STILL STOLEN! and we would still love to get it back.

Get Your Rear in Gear - Kansas City had their giant, inflatable colon stolen! We know what an important asset that colon is for raising colorectal cancer awareness in Kansas City, and want to help replace it. At a cost of over $4000, we need your help to make that happen!
Should the colon be found, or additional money raised, know that your donation will help further screening, education, and awareness for colon and rectal cancer.
