    The “Flush Cancer Goodbye!” fundraiser is available to anyone to send to the front yards of friends, family, co-workers, etc., to benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, hosted by the local Team Mike (Mike Evans). For $20, citizens are invited to send the purple commode to a local yard for three days.
    For those who wake to find the toilet in their yard and wish it to disappear earlier may pay $10 donation. There is a “Potty Protection” fee to keep the toilet from visiting your home.
    “This is a trial run,” said Kirsten Kelley, one of the organizers for the first-time fundraiser. “Hopefully it'll go over well and raise awareness. I think it will, I think it will turn into a rivalry and people will enjoy it. It's bright purple – you can't miss it. But mostly, I hope we can spread the awareness that even though we aren't in the medial field, we are working hard to find a cure for cancer.”
    To send the “Flush Cancer Goodbye” potty, or for more information, contact Kirsten at 417-793-9681.
