Tallahatchie-Oxford Missionary Baptist Association Building

Fashion show to celebrate surviving breast cancer

LaVera Hodges is now cancer free and taking life one day at a time. To help other survivors feel as good as she does, she is holding the second “Struttin’ Pretty in Pink” breast cancer fashion show to raise awareness and donations as well as give survivors a chance to simply feel pretty.

The fashion show will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Tallahatchie-Oxford Missionary Baptist association building off Highway 334.

The models will be survivors, current cancer patients and family and friends of those dealing with cancer. (October 29, 2010, Page 11A)
