MONTREAL, Oct. 6 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - World-renowned daredevil Ryan Robinson attempted to perform a record-breaking stunt in Old Montreal today. The fearless professional highliner completed a 1,000-foot walk on a 1-inch wide webbing in front of a captivated crowd, but fell short of the record.
Robinson was brought to town to promote HemovelTM, an innovative oral treatment for hemorrhoids, distributed by Pendopharm, a division of Pharmascience Inc. The privately-owned, Montreal-based company organized this event to get people talking about an enduring taboo and a condition that affects millions of Canadians.
Hemorrhoids can be a highly unpleasant and, most often, unmentionable condition. Sufferers typically endure symptoms in silence because they feel embarrassed or helpless when faced with a flare-up. The distributors of HemovelTM are determined to break the taboos associated with hemorrhoids and to blow the lid off the silence surrounding this subject. Sufferers can now be relieved simply by an oral tablet that alleviates the embarrassment typically inherent in treating the ailment. With this innovative treatment, hemorrhoids can be treated anywhere—even 80 feet above the ground.
HemovelTM is the first promoted oral hemorrhoid treatment in Canada. "As distributers of this innovative and effective oral treatment for hemorrhoids — we understand that most people shy away from talking about this condition," says Mathieu Paquette– Senior Group Brand Manager OTC, Pendopharm. "Our goal is to break that taboo and get people talking. The best way to do that is by being bold but respectful at the same time.'' says Mr. Paquette.
HemovelTM is a clinically proven way to relieve the symptoms associated with hemorrhoids. Its format – an oral tablet available over the counter – is hassle-free and convenient to use.
