AnaOno Hosts Fourth Annual New York Fashion Week

Home Blog AnaOno Hosts Fourth Annual New York Fashion Week

AnaOno is hosting their 4th annual New York Fashion Week show benefiting METAvivor.org. This year’s show is focused on bridging the gap throughout our community, from early-stage breast cancer patients and survivors to Stage IV breast cancer patients. We experience division in our lives so often these days, but the one separation we cannot afford is the fear that early-stage patients encounter when diagnosed with breast cancer. 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, and 30% of those patients will develop metastatic breast cancer. Stage IV cancer means it has moved beyond the breast, infiltrated other parts of the body, and is now life-threatening.  

This year’s theme is #fearLESS. It is intended for everyone to come together as a community and shine a light on the things we fear most, from a patient who chose a preventative mastectomy who fears a diagnosis, to an early-stage diagnosed patient who fears a reoccurrence, or a late-stage patient who fears death. These are all appropriate fears following diagnosis. We should not be ashamed, we should not be embarrassed. We should feel free to be afraid, because no matter what stage someone is at, it is frightening.

Join AnaOno to show the support of these incredible patient models who have been affected at all stages of breast cancer to shine a light on their fears that so many of us share, to open the door to honest and productive conversations, to raise awareness and advocacy, to raise funds for Stage IV breast cancer, and to save the lives of those who face this terminal illness.
