Catwalk for BMC Cancer Care
Thursday, June 28, 2012 from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM (EDT)
Boston, United States
Celebrate BMC Cancer Survivors at this inaugural runway event!
What: The inaugural runway event to benefit BMC Cancer Care will feature 7 local designers creating and styling specifically for the runway. These fashion looks will not only adorn local celebrities like Farrah Lester (Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester’s wife) and Katie Boyd (star of Style Networks Boston based reality series Wicked Fit), but more importantly will feature cancer survivors and BMC staff as runway models. Tickets to the event include a signature cocktail, passed hors d'oeuvres, silent auction, fashion show, post reception, and gift bag.
Who: At BMC’s Cancer Care Center, we do much more than diagnose and treat cancer. For many of our patients, we are “family” and we provide the support and hope that any of us would want and need if we were sick. Because we provide exceptional care without exception, we specialize in treating low-income patients whose lives are so challenged that a cancer diagnosis may not be the biggest problem in their lives. Without insurance, and often without any kind of support network, their diagnosis makes them feel hopeless and even more alone. In fact, many patients will try to ignore their diagnosis because they simply cannot afford to be sick.
In addition to providing comprehensive clinical care and conducting cutting-edge research, we offer Patient Navigators who help newly diagnosed patients eliminate any barriers to care. They help patients with everything from arranging rides to their appointments, coordinating appointments to reduce the number of missed days at work, obtain health insurance, and offer encouragement and support throughout treatment. Assisting our navigators are our committed staff and volunteers who organize support groups, survivorship programs, wellness programs and build communities of patients who provide invaluable support to each other.
