CANCER AND POOP: WHAT IS THE CONNECTION?

  • Cancer drugs can work better or worse depending on the bacteria in a person’s gut.

  • Helpful bacteria can help the immune system destroy cancer cells.

  • Harmful bacteria can cause inflammation that lowers the immune system’s ability to fight cancer.

  • How can we know what is in a person’s gut? Poop! By examining stool samples, we can develop ways to fight cancer.

YOU CAN HELP. HOW? BY SIMPLY DONATING YOUR POOP!

  • If you are a person with cancer, either receiving treatment or in remission, we want your stool.

  • If you are healthy, but have a history of cancer in your family, we want your stool.

  • Donating stool is easy! Persephone Biome™ will give you an easy-to-use kit with prepaid shipping.

  • You will receive a $50 reward card and a T-shirt for your efforts!
