January 7th 2017

Despite the years first big snowfall, blustery winds, near white out conditions, and very, very cold temperatures. Members of the Carle Place community braved the elements and turned out in droves to celebrate and honor the lives of two of their own, Leanne Kozak and Lynn Devivo, who lost their battles with Melanoma, the deadliest form of Skin Cancer.

The event organizer Paul Steck (Melanoma Survivor), his wife Maria, daughter Natalie, the Carle Place Community, and the family and friends of Leanne and Lynn continue to raise awareness and spread the “Be Sun Smart” message to prevent Skin Cancer Melanoma. Protect Yourself From the Dangerous and Deadly UV Rays of the Sun; Wear sunscreen daily, hats, sunglasses, and UV clothing; See Your Dermatologist Yearly, and Don’t Use Tanning Beds!
