Since that time, so much has changed in the fight against breast cancer. Women are now surviving the disease at a higher rate and being more proactive about their breast self examinations, and annual mammograms.
So when I was invited to attend the Pink Saves Fashion show being hosted by the Citadel Outlets and the Susan G. Komen Foundation, I couldn’t say no!
What really made this show special was that instead of using regular models, breast cancer survivors and the angels who supported them during their fight, ripped the runway together.
The mistress of ceremonies for the evening was actress, Garcelle Beauvais. Guests were also serenaded during the finale by singer, Melissa Manchester. Each survivor was briefly interviewed by the show’s host, and each shared their years of survivorship, ranging from 1 to 17 years.
Ladies, don’t forget your monthly self-examinations and annual mammograms! It could mean your life. Thank you to the Citadel Outlets and the Susan G. Komen Foundation for inviting me to this inaugural event.
