Senator Phillips Co-Hosts Skin Cancer Screening In Roslyn, NY.
August 29th, 2017
Senator Elaine Phillips, in partnership with Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign and Northwell Dermatology Group, hosted a free Skin Cancer Screening on Saturday at the Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn.
“Skin screenings are extremely important for detecting melanoma and other skin cancers in the early stages,” Senator Elaine Phillips. “Getting tested regularly, no matter your age or how much time you spend in the sun, is paramount and can be life-saving. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and I am pleased so many local residents took advantage of the free screening.”
Colette Coyne, for whom the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign is named after, passed away at just 30 years old after melanoma spread to her liver, bones and lungs. A bright young woman with a promising future, Colette touched the lives of everyone she encountered. The Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign works to bring awareness to skin cancer and encourages people to get tested early and regularly.
CCMAC is especially grateful to Northwell Dermatology, Belaray Dermatology, and Dr. Ted Daly of Garden City Dermatology, without their dedication and caring for the community these life saving screenings would not be possible, THANK YOU ALL!!!
