Breast cancer survivors honored at Pink Runway

September 15, 2012 by  

Survivors of breast cancer will be celebrated at the annual Pink Runway fashion show in Riverside at the end of the month.

The event was created to honor all women who have experienced breast cancer, including survivors, those currently fighting it, and those who lost their battle against it.

Models in the show will all be survivors of breast cancer. Each model had to get a mastectomy to remove the cancer and underwent breast reconstructive surgery. These courageous and beautiful fashion models will be showcasing some of Macy’s finest fashions on the runway.

Events such as this one that occur within a community often utilize the printing services of local print companies for a variety of advertising materials. Banner printing, poster printing, and flyer printing are typically used to raise awareness about such activities. Brochure printers may also be used to provide those in attendance with information regarding the event or those sponsoring it.

This is the fourth year of the fashion event, which is hosted by the Loma Linda University Health System Department of Plastic Surgery. Tickets for the Pink Runway fashion show can be purchased for $30 on the Pink Runway website or by phone at 909-558-2344.

Dr. Subhas Gupta, who is chairperson for the Department of Plastic Surgery at Loma Linda University Health System, stated:

“Our Department of Plastic Surgery is very proud to take a leading role in closing the loop on breast cancer by helping to ensure all women are educated on their reconstructive options post-mastectomy. That is the major goal of our Pink Runway event.”

The fashion extravaganza is set to begin at 4:00 pm at 3485 Mission Inn Avenue on Sunday, September 30.
