[ARCHIVED] Children Battling Cancer Take the Stage at Macarthur Center in Norfolk!

Tampa, FL – September 19, 2018 – The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is working to find a cure for our youngest fighters. You can celebrate their courage as they make their debut on the runway for Fashion Funds the Cure, benefiting The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The runway show is scheduled for Saturday, September 29th at 2 p.m. in MacArthur Center in Norfolk, VA.

This event provides the perfect opportunity to see the latest fashions and make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer, all at the same time. We are anticipating an attendance of 300 at this premier event in center court at MacArthur Center.

The fashion show will highlight the latest fashions from Charming Charlie, Chico’s, Dillard’s, Francesca’s, Loft and Talbots. During the first segment of the show we will meet each featured pediatric cancer patient and learn about their hobbies and interests. The second segment showcases the newest trends of the season. As a finale, each featured model will walk dressed as what they want to be when they grow up, walking with someone from that profession. The uplifting finale will be staged with music that complements each child’s dream.

A Silent Auction will round out the event and showcase many of MacArthur Center’s merchants including Aveda, California Pizza Kitchen, Dillard’s Pandora, Sephora, Talbots, The Children’s Place, Yankee Candle and an item from Fink’s Jewelry valued at $1,000.

Founded in 1991, The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is dedicated to funding clinical trials by collaborating with a network of cutting-edge hospitals across the nation to eliminate childhood cancer and fast track less-toxic, more targeted treatments and therapies.

The NPCF has received a perfect 100% score for financial health and transparency and is recognized as the top-rated cancer charity in the U.S. by Charity Navigator.

Why is this important?
  • Cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children.
  • 43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer.
  • Only 4% of the billions of dollars that are annually spent on cancer research and treatments are directed towards treating childhood cancer.
  • More than 95% of those who survive childhood cancer will have a significant health related issue by the time they are 45 as a result of being treated with drugs designed for adults.
