On Sunday, at the Taste for a Cure Gala with Polka Dot Mama, Coach P was honored with a grant in her name for melanoma research and the surgeon general was in attendance.
Really honored to be speaking at the @polkadotmamainc event to benefit melanoma prevention and research. Melanoma is far too common, often preventable, and holds a very deep personal connection for me and my family. It’s why I want everyone to be #sunsafe 🌞 pic.twitter.com/rkLsTYaiKS— U.S. Surgeon General (@Surgeon_General) April 28, 2019
