The Colette Coyne Melanoma Awareness Campaign (CCMAC) began in 1998 in response to the death of an exceptional thirty-year-old woman named Colette Marie Brigid Coyne. Through the efforts of her family, friends and co-workers who have all been touched by Colette's life, a foundation has been established. It is their hope that others and their loved ones will be spared the pain and suffering of this deadly disease called Melanoma, also known as skin cancer. Teamed up with their corporate partner OSI Pharmaceuticals, the New York Islanders has Sparky and the Ice Girls on hand at Eisenhower Park on Saturday morning to be a part of the 4th annual CCMAC “Steps to Stop Skin Cancer” walk. From 9 to 11 am Sparky and the girls were available to take pictures with all the walkers as well as hand out some giveaways to the fans. Sparky and the Ice Girls also participated with the large crowd in the walk.
