Thomas & Colette Coyne Over the Years
Bagels & Coffee Provided for All TEAM Members!!!
As many of you know my sister Colette died from of Melanoma Skin Cancer. She was diagnosed in May 1998 and died just six months later, October 27th, 1998. Shortly after her death the Colette Coyne Memorial Melanoma Foundation, also known as the Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign or CCMAC for short was started.
Over the years CCMAC has accomplished a great many things; educated students and teachers in grade schools, high schools, and college campuses; educated members of the LI community at street fairs, parks and recreation facilities, and professional sporting events; provided FREE Skin Cancer screenings in county and state parks; have built numerous shade structures “Dug Outs” on ball fields for our children to play safer in the sun; and have passed several laws on the county and state levels preventing teens from using tanning salons. We have accomplished a great deal, and undoubtedly have saved lives.
I need your support in order to help CCMAC continue to do these great works. Looking forward to seeing you all and enjoying a fun filled day!
