Bucay Spotlight

Champions for Change Gala

This year I am honored to join the committee for the Champions for Change Gala, taking place on May 10, 2023 at Ziegfield Ballroom in NYC.

Skin cancer is a cause I care deeply about. It is the world's most common cancer and The Skin Cancer Foundation is the only global organization dedicated to the prevention, early detection and prompt treatment of skin cancer. This year, May 10 marks the 17th anniversary of my metastatic melanoma diagnosis. Research drives innovation, but research takes money. In 2006, I was fortunate to be part of a clinical trial that resulted in the 2011 approval of an immunotherapy that was the first of many to change the often dismal prognosis for those with stage 4 melanoma. I am deeply grateful for my good health and am committed to helping others like me to live cancer free. Please consider a donation to the Skin Cancer Foundation and help others have access to prevention, early detection, and treatment.
