Announcing Adam Perzow and Michelle Abbott as co-chairs of Magic for Melanoma

The David Cornfield Melanoma Fund is delighted to welcome Adam Perzow and Michelle Abbott as co-chairs of Magic for Melanoma sponsored by Deloitte.

When we were looking for melanoma survivors to participate in a melanoma prevention and awareness video in 2010, Adam enthusiastically agreed to help us out. Along with other melanoma survivors and family members, Adam generously shared his story in our 2011 video Dear 16 Year Old Me. Adam’s honesty, charm and unique voice played a central role in the video.

We were surprised and thrilled by the reception and impact of Dear 16 Year Old Me. With over 10 million views, multiple awards and translations, celebrity and organizational shares and life-saving credits, Dear 16 Year Me far surpassed our expectations. Dear 16 Year Old Me was also a game-changer for DCMF kick-starting a new era of action on melanoma awareness, prevention and research.

Adam and Michelle have been loyal supporters of DCMF since our formation in 2007. In addition to participating in Dear 16 Year Old Me, Adam has acted as our sponsorship volunteer since 2014.

Outside of DCMF, Adam is a prominent lawyer at BLG and Michelle is a caring and compassionate teacher. They are also busy parents of two teenage boys.

This year, Adam and Michelle are stepping up to co-chair our fundraising event Magic For Melanoma sponsored by Deloitte. “The DCMF and melanoma awareness and prevention is a cause near and dear to our hearts and we are thrilled to take on this role,” Adam and Michelle.

We thank Adam and Michelle for their leadership and look forward to making melanoma disappear on May 2nd, 2019.
