Sarnoff MD commented about the impact of the Foundation’s work, "We do this work at The Skin Cancer Foundation because we believe in what we do and we have seen the results. Indeed, we have saved lives. We celebrate the champions who face this disease head on; their loved ones who fight right alongside them and the people who work tirelessly to provide the resources needed to prevent, detect, and treat skin cancer before it can devastate a life.”The Champion for Change Award was presented to Robert J. Friedman, MD, clinical professor at NYU School of Medicine, Department of Dermatology, for his dedication to skin cancer education. The Skin Cancer Foundation’s 2018 Media Award was presented to O, The Oprah Magazine, in recognition of the magazine’s outstanding skin cancer-related editorial coverage.
