(CMR) Catwalk for Cancer raised approximately $20,000, which will be donated to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and Jasmine Palliative & Hospice Care.
It was an evening of elegance, glam, and fun as lovely models of different ages strutted their stuff at Catwalk for Cancer last Wednesday night at the Paseo in Camana Bay. The popular, well-attended event, aimed at raising funds for and increasing awareness of cancer, featured the trendiest spring fashions, cutting-edge designs, and looks that slayed.
Addressing those in attendance, Health City's Head of Sales & Marketing, Rebekah Brooks, stated that while some may be indifferent to fashion, “the reality of cancer is such that we cannot be indifferent. We must show up, support, advocate, and make a difference whether we’re wearing flats or stilettos, an LBD or a maxi.”
Mrs. Brooks added that as fashion is ever-evolving, so too must healthcare. She highlighted that Health City continues to set trends in healthcare, most recently with the opening of its Radiation Oncology Centre, which features the latest technology in the form of a Siemens TruBeam Varian Linear Accelerator. The new facility will provide advanced cancer care for locals, removing the need to travel overseas.
She iterated, “With cancer developing and progressing in an evolutionary manner, it is incumbent on those of us in the medical field to ensure our treatment solutions are also evolving. Health City remains committed to being ‘on-trend’, providing innovative and successful treatment options for our patients.”
The evening was made possible through partnership with Health City and Sand Angels, Amé, West Indies Wine Company, Jardel and Chad Monro, and Sannyasa Yoga & Acrobatics Ltd, whose beautiful dancers lit up the night.
