A large part of the funds raised by The Glenna Kohl Fund for Hope go towards the Glenna O. Kohl Melanoma Research Fund at Mass General Hospital. Through our donations and the donations of others, Dr. Donald Lawrence and the faculty at Mass General Cancer Center can continue to fuel pioneering discoveries in melanoma research. Click here to read a thank you letter from MGH for the funds raised at the last Angel’s Masquerade Ball on March 15th, 2014.

Prevention & Awareness

Funds raised are earmarked to construct shade canopies for lifeguard chairs, large umbrella canopies, and install sunscreen dispensers on Cape Cod beaches for all to use. Glenna guarded the beaches on Cape Cod for five summers, earning the title of head lifeguard at Dowses Beach in Osterville. Lifeguarding increased Glenna’s risk of melanoma from 40+ hours of UV ray exposure each week while stationed at her unprotected lifeguard tower. The red shade canopies are locally designed and constructed to protect lifeguards while continuing Glenna’s mission to promote awareness of the dangers of overexposure to the sun’s UV rays. The large umbrella canopies are meant to provide shade for lifeguards and beachgoers who spend long periods of time under summer rays.

We are grateful for the support of Cape Cod Healthcare to our “Shade the Cape” initiative. With these Community Benefits Program funds, we are able to install an additional 30 sunscreen dispensers throughout all fifteen towns on Cape Cod! These new locations will soon be noted on the map, and their support underscores the vulnerability of Barnstable County’s residents and visitors to melanoma and our mission to increase awareness of our community to the importance of early detection and prevention of melanoma.
