Love Your Skin Stark County is a collaborative effort between North Canton Medical Foundation and Ellen’s Effort to bring awareness to the importance of healthy skin.
According to the American Cancer Society, each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. Early detection is key!
Our efforts are in memory of Ellen Gray. Vibrant and athletic, Ellen radiated health and vitality. Her love for the community was evident in everything she did. Less than a year after her devastating diagnosis, Ellen lost her fight to melanoma at the young age of 29. While battling cancer, Ellen found great solace in painting as a release both mentally and physically from this horrible disease. With that in mind, the bi-annual art auction was created.
All proceeds from this event will raise money to support the NCMF Cancer Relief Fund, which provides financial assistance to patients undergoing treatment for their immediate needs in ways not provided for by other programs with items such as wigs, meals, bus passes, and gas cards.
