Fashion for Life/White Party to Support SPY Imaging Technology for Reconstruction Patients
Fashion for Life/White Party will continue their mandate of supporting local cancer survivors with their event planned on April 26th. This will be the second year Fashion for Life/White Party directs their proceeds to Breast Reconstruction at Cambridge Memorial Hospital.
Once again, the Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener will serve as the backdrop for this elegant fashion experience. Guests will enjoy an evening of fashion and fun, featuring some of the Region's top retailers, served hors d'oeuvres by Wildcraft Catering and a live auction. Limited VIP Lounge Packages are available for those seeking the ultimate event experience.
“The women who benefit from reconstruction surgery in our Region are counting on us to come through for them. Some of these brave women will be involved in our show again this year, either by sharing their journey or as our guest models. We are thrilled to be hosting Fashion for Life/White Party at the glamorous Hacienda Sarria and we are anticipating a terrific year!” commented Audrey Wilson, Event Producer, With Audrey Consulting.
Immediate breast reconstruction as part of a mastectomy or lumpectomy procedure is a relatively new option for women in Waterloo Region. A team of local surgeons at Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH), including Drs. Rob Shenker, Amy Chesney and Stephanie Ma, perform many types of reconstructive breast surgery, including this ‘same-day’ technique when possible. They work in a close partnership with Dr. Donna Kolyn and her general surgery team to provide seamless care for these patients.
Fashion for Life/White Party proceeds will help to complete the purchase of a SPY Elite Fluorescence Imaging System, vital in identifying healthy tissue during reconstruction surgery. Used by Dr. Shenker’s team in the operating room, SPY technology allows for better healing following surgery, fewer complications and a greater patient experience overall.
CMH’s Breast Reconstruction program will be offered within the larger, more modern surgical suites of the new patient care wing when it opens later this year.
Fashion for Life will hold their 9th Annual White Party fashion event on April 26, 2018 at the Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener. Sponsorship is available by contacting Audrey Wilson, Audrey@geminimodels.com
