It’s been less than 2 years since Bill Cowher tragically and suddenly lost his wife Kaye to skin cancer, but now the former Steelers standard bearer is doing something about it.
In an effort profiled by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Bill Cowher is helping launch the public awareness campaign “Melanoma Exposed.”
The campaign’s aim is to get people to take the disease seriously and to get themselves checked. As the Post Gazette article details, Melanoma is a very leathal form of skin cancer, but it is treatable – when caught early.
As part of the campaign, several NFL teams, including the Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, and Baltimore Ravens will be holding free screenings. Bill Cowher adds that he hopes the Pittsburgh Steelers follow suit.
