The show was about much more than celebration.
One of the SCAR models, Vanessa, who was one of the first to be photographed for The SCAR Project, made it to last night’s reception. Her cancer has metastasized and she has very little time left. She closed the presentation with a pledge to “live sincerely” no matter what life hands you.
The Alabama ladies were surrounded by their most important supporters–fellow survivors, members of their medical teams, their families and friends. Dr. Forero, pictured above, cared for four of the Alabama women. They thanked him for being there so that they could be here.
