The 'Phenomenal Woman' returns
Cynthia Black’s second “Phenomenal Woman” Cancer Awareness Fashion Show benefit will hit the runway 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Hilton Garden Inn, 55 Town Center Blvd. This time, the show will feature not only women who will be modeling from their personal wardrobes, but also five male cancer survivors. The models will be wearing black, red and white clothing to represent the diagnosis, treatment, and healing stages of their journey. Star model, 5-year-old Kiera Timmons, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at age 3 and will most likely need a bone marrow transplant, will be making her way down the runway with her fellow senior cancer survivors.
The event will also include speakers Faith Coleman, co-founder of the Flagler Free Clinic, Marion Hassell, a 10-year breast cancer survivor, and Col. Lloyd Freckleton, a breast cancer survivor. In addition, there will be local cancer specialists and NFL and NBA moms.
The proceeds from the benefit will be donated to Kiera. The goal is to raise $25,000 for the operation since health insurance will not cover the entire cost. An appeal for donations can be found on her Facebook page, “Hope for Kiera.”
Tickets are $50. Call 546-1817.
