LAS VEGAS, March 1, 2012 – TapeRelief™ is pleased to announce that it will be ‘going blue’ to support the National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month beginning March 1, 2012. TapeRelief.com will be adorned with a blue ribbon of support and links to the Colon Cancer Alliance. The company will also support awareness through its social media platforms throughout the month.
Colon cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that 143,460 people will be diagnosed in 2012 and that 51,690 will die from colon cancer in the United States.
“TapeRelief™ was created by a Colostomy patient who was tired of the pain and discomfort caused by the daily tape and bandages,” stated Athena Koler, spokesperson for TapeRelief™. “This product is proven to enhance the quality of life for a patient with ostomy and really anyone who is routinely applying tape or bandages to their skin.”
For the month of March, TapeRelief will provide a “Buy One Get One Free” bottle of TapeRelief™. The promotion is offered to medical providers, friends, and sufferers of colorectal disease. TapeRelief will also donate cases of its product to the Colon Cancer Alliance directly.
Visitors to the site can simply enter a quantity of 2 on the purchase page and then use the promotional code “SURVIVE” to get the second bottle free.
Applied to the skin as a fast-drying cream, TapeRelief™ effectively prevents irritation common to frequent users of bandages and tape by creating a topical barrier between the tape or bandage and the skin. The tape or bandage then adheres to the dried layer of TapeRelief™, preventing any irritation from adhesive, moisture, and more. Additionally, TapeRelief™ includes healing and soothing ingredients such as organic oatmeal and tea tree oil to improve the underlying skin while it protects.
In a 2009 report by the British Medical Journal (BMJ), a wound care study found “events such as maceration, allergic reaction, eczema of periulcer skin, and infection as bandage related.”
