On August 18 we had the distinct honor of attending John and Joanne (Coach P) McCallie’s 25th wedding anniversary party in Durham, NC and with their support we were able to raise close to $7,000!!!
Coach P is known for her role as head coach of the Duke Women’s Basketball Team and is truly a one of a kind melanoma advocate and a true champion. Coach P continues to use her voice and her own experiences to help us raise melanoma awareness, money for research and to promote early detection of melanoma.
Coach P took time out of her busy schedule this spring to be an important part of our campaign These Tan Lines Don’t Fade Campaign. We also had the distinct honor of having her attend our May 1 Taste for a Cure Gala where she delivered an amazing key note speech.
When many people face adversity, they often choose to stay silent. Coach P is the opposite. Despite her own challenges she continues to fight and crusade to help educate people about melanoma. Coach P is a true Polka Dot Champion and we are so proud to call her our friend, our advocate and our hero.
Thank you John and Joanne for your tremendous support and for helping us fight melanoma together!!! Happy 25th Wedding Anniversary…..cheers to many more!
