Dove Interior Owners Participate In Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers 5K

Each year, Carpet One participates in the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers 5K in New York City, supporting and bringing awareness to this cause. The race retraces the steps of Stephen Siller, a FDNY fireman who was off the day the call came in on 9/11.

Stephen put on his 60 pounds of gear and ran through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he and his entire battalion perished that day. This foundation builds Smart Homes for our catastrophically wounded veterans, first responders and their families.

Joan and Kim, mother and daughter owners of Dove Interiors, joined the race in New York City on September 29.

Dove Interiors Carpet One will be participating in the local Clearwater 5K on November 2, as well. Anyone wanting to participate should go to 2019 Tunnel to Towers Clearwater to register.

Dove Interiors remodeled its showroom at the end of last year and decided rather than sell a container full of its office furniture, chose to donate all of it to the Mary & Martha House.

Florida Dermatology And Skin Cancer Centers Opens New Office In Apollo Beach

Florida Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers (FLDSCC), a family-focused practice with offices throughout Florida, has expanded and is now open in Apollo Beach. Located in the Kings Lake plaza, the new office is easily accessible to current and future patients in surrounding communities. FLDSCC’s team of providers treats all types of skin and scalp conditions and is committed to providing exceptional patient care and service.

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Skin cancer, such as melanoma, can appear at any time in a person’s life, and the risk increases as you age. Florida ranks second in the nation for the highest rate of new melanoma cases. The good news is that if it’s detected early, it’s almost always treatable.

“We are thrilled to bring Florida Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers to the growing area of Apollo Beach,” said Medical Director of FLDSCC Dr. K. Wade Foster. “The fact that more people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. than all other cancers combined, means we as an organization have a duty to educate and treat as many people as possible to give them the best chance for favorable outcomes.”

He and his team use proven, innovative methods to remove cancers, preserve healthy skin and restore natural appearance.

Dr. Foster received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the University of Alabama Birmingham. He completed both his internship and residency at UAB and his procedural dermatology fellowship at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine and the West Los Angeles V.A. Medical Center under Dr. Ron Moy. He has been a medical director of Florida Dermatology and Skin Cancer Centers since July 2008.

Dr. Foster is fellowship-trained in Mohs surgery, the most effective technique for most types of skin cancers with minimal scarring or risk. Call 855-353-7546, or email
