The Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation Announces “Shade Shuttle” Launch Multi-State Tour

TOUR VISITED HOBOKEN MONDAY, APRIL 10th, 2017

Shade Shuttle Tour

The Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation is raising awareness and educating the community about melanoma by launching the “Shade Shuttle” and a multi-state tour. A polka dot bus featuring awareness facts about the deadliest form of skin cancer will be picked up in Egg Harbor, NJ on April 10, 2017 and stopping in Hoboken, NJ before heading home to Raleigh, NC.

 

Currently 1 in 5 people in the US will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime with melanoma being the deadliest. In 2016 the US Surgeon General declared skin cancer an epidemic in this country, yet it is highly preventable. Melanoma does not discriminate against age, race, gender or skin color, and the “Shade Shuttle” is setting out on a multi-state tour to spread awareness.

 

Recently a school bus was donated to the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation by Integrity Bus. Special thanks to Joe Duncan and the Tara Miller Melanoma Foundation  for facilitating the donation. Tara Miller lost her battle to melanoma six weeks shy of  her 30th birthday and her foundation has raised over $1.5 million to support research. Local Egg Harbor, NJ company Promotional Junction wrapped and branded the bus as the “Shade Shuttle,” which features polka dots and facts about melanoma. The bus will be converted into a mobile education unit upon its return home and plans to offer free skin screenings when possible.

The donated bus was picked up by the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation at 7:30am on April 10, 2017 at 5521 White Horse Pike, Egg Harbor City, NJ. From there, the “Shade Shuttle” multi-state tour  stopped at Pier A, 101 Sinatra Drive in Hoboken, NJ. The bus was there  from 12pm to 2pm. Offering Free skin screenings to visitors by the Schweiger Dermatology Group, as well as free tubes of sunscreen and sunglasses.

The tour continues with a stop in Richmond, VA, before the “Shade Shuttle” continues home to Raleigh, NC.

 

Trimark, a Raleigh, NC videography company will be documenting the “Shade Shuttle” journey and plans to produce a short video about the multi-state tour and the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation’s mission.

About the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation

Founded in 2015 by a three time melanoma survivor Tracy Callahan, the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation is a non-profit organization that funds research, raises awareness and educates the community about melanoma. Learn more at polkadotmama.org.
