Impact Melanoma

 

Arbella & IMPACT Melanoma

Founded in 1999, IMPACT Melanoma has made it their mission to reduce occurrences and generate awareness of melanoma. Arbella is proud to be the Official Auto Insurance Partner of IMPACT Melanoma, and together, we are committed to help raise awareness of this type of cancer.

Melanoma is one of the most preventable types of cancer, yet it is increasing at a faster rate than most. With simple things like wearing sunblock and scheduling a yearly check-up with a dermatologist, you can drastically reduce your chances of getting melanoma.

Over the last few years, Arbella Insurance has partnered with IMPACT Melanoma on the skin cancer awareness initiative, “Practice Safe Sun.” As part of this program, sunscreen dispensers with complimentary sunscreen are placed in parks, playgrounds, and beaches all across Massachusetts. Proper sunscreen use can help reduce the risk of melanoma and other types of skin cancer.

This summer, Arbella and IMPACT are teaming up to promote “Safe Skin at Work,” an initiative to encourage outdoor workers to practice sun-safe behaviors. Educational materials will be provided to jobsite employees and Arbella will be sponsoring 17 sunscreen dispensers to be placed at worksites across Massachusetts.

IMPACT Melanoma offers free support groups, educational programs, professional care, and lots of other services. They truly care about improving the lives of people in our communities, and Arbella is proud to partner with this wonderful organization.

Last but not least! If you’re an eligible Massachusetts resident, Arbella will give you 6% off your Arbella auto insurance policy when you donate $50 or more to IMPACT Melanoma. For more information on this discount, click here or contact your local MA independent agent.
