AIR DATE: June 17, 2011

Molly McMaster Morgoslepov was an active inline skater and hockey player when doctors told her she had colon cancer.  She was 23.  Since then, Molly has founded the Colon Club, and is spreading awareness with a giant colon.  People can walk through the 40-foot long, 4-foot tall replica.  While many visitors laugh, Molly says it's a big step in spreading awareness about colon cancer, a reminder to her about all the friends she has lost to the disease.
