This is the ninth year the Foundation has been a part of the Fair. In the middle […]

Modeling for Cancer Prevention

Today’s post was written by Chaseedaw Giles, the creator of the Alive Again fashion show. While backstage at a DC Fashion Week runway show in 2013, I overheard a fellow model talking about how her hair was just starting to grow back.
