  1. Thank you Lariza for attending our symposium on Colorectal Cancer Awareness at The Medical City. I just want to share the link where you can see the video I made of our colon balloon meant for public education.
    The link will bring you to my Professional Page, and you can see the link of the video.
    Thank you for supporting our cause.
