Dallas, TX - At the 25th Annual Children’s Cancer Fund Luncheon and Fashion Show, young cancer survivor Natasha Green, a six-year-old from Coppell, modeled a white spring frock May 3, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. Natasha was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a cancer of the blood.
Natasha’s outfit reflected her sense of style and personality because she picked it out. She joined 36 other children who took part in the annual fundraiser. Fashions were donated by Dillard’s, and each child got to keep the items they chose to model.
Money donated at the event supports research for cures of childhood cancer and helps find ways to minimize the long-term effects of treatment to give children like Natasha a happier and healthier life.
When it was Natasha’s turn to strut down the runway, she was pushed on stage atop a brown truck by two employees of United Parcel Service (UPS) dressed in their trademark brown. They presented her with a sparkling tiara.
