Award winning artist/designer, Colleen Dougherty Bronstein, has launched her new line of SunSafe Clothing. You can meet the artist at the upcoming Focus on Melanoma Conference, Friday, May 2, 2008 at the Hilton Hotel 4200 City Avenue Philadelphia, PA 8:00am to 2:30pm. This event is sponsored by the University of Pennsylvania Abramson Cancer Center. Colleen will be on hand with her collection along with a brass sun necklace that is inscribed with a check up notation on the back.
The SunSafe Clothing line came about after the artist was diagnosed with malignant melanoma in August 1999 and needed to feel protected while swimming and sailing, which she loves. Colleen’s designs are distinctly different from the very generic, unisex styles on the market, in that they are designed with a feminine touch in beautiful colors. The fabric is 50+ UPF protection.
It is recommended that each person examine their skin monthly for skin abnormalities and have a clinical skin exam every year by a health care professional.
Colleen Dougherty Bronstein Designs supports The Mark Allen Friedman Foundation (melanoma), Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and will support The Danny Federici Melanoma Fund, once this fund has been established.
