Cancer Survivors Shine at "And Still I Rise" event


    (KHQA)

    The community is coming together tonight to honor and support area women and their fight against cancer. It's all part of the 2nd Annual 'And Still I Rise' event tonight.

    The event includes dinner and a fashion show highlighting models who are currently fighting or have beat cancer.

    Proceeds from the night help cancer patients pay for everyday expenses while they go through treatment, things like gas, utilites and other expenses.

    For one cancer survivor, it's a moment of excitement.

    "This is amazing. It's so empowering. It's just like a final you made it," cancer survivor Nancy Aikman said.

    20 women got the chance to walk the runaway with clothes donated by various area boutiques.
