This annual event celebrates the accomplishments of IMPACT Melanoma, formerly the Melanoma Foundation of New England, and honors those who helped make the year possible including melanoma thought leaders, patients, and supporters.

You won’t want to miss the delicious cuisine, open bar, entertainment, exciting auctions, a meaningful program and surprise after party. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!

IMPACT Melanoma is thrilled to present this year’s Suzanne Donahue Keeper of the Hope award, an honor bestowed to an individual or corporation who has made outstanding contributions to the world of melanoma awareness, to Robin Travers, MD (pictured right). A dermatologist at Boston based SkinCare Physicians, Robin has been a longtime supporter and advocate of IMPACT Melanoma. Over the year, she’s jumped at any opportunity to be involved with our programs and events. Robin sits on our Medical Advisory Board, runs the Boston Marathon each year as part of Team Running for Cover as well as coaches the other 30+ runners, trains beauty professionals through our Skinny On Skin program, and is featured in our Your Skin Is In eLearning curriculum teaching students the facts and myths of skin cancer. Robin embodies the passion and heart that Suzanne lived her life with each and every day.
