Cancer Survivors to Walk the Runway in Bolivia for Charity

LA PAZ – A runway featuring cancer survivors from all over the world will kick off next month in Bolivia, aiming to dispel the plethora of myths surrounding the disease and show attendees that the will to live is a powerful weapon to combat the illness.

The “Bionic Fashion Day” – which will get underway Nov. 15 – will feature participants ages 18-25 from an assortment of countries around the globe, including the United States, Morocco, Spain, Mexico and Bolivia, Fundacion Nuestra Esperanza vice president Mary Rengel told EFE.

The goal is to prove that “beauty goes beyond physical attributes,” Rengel said, adding that humans are much more than just their bodies.

The event is organized by the Youth Against Cancer foundation, which was created a few years ago in Ecuador and now seeks to launch its fourth edition in Bolivia.

The models – who will arrive in the country Nov. 15 – sport some form of prosthetic to replace a limb lost to cancer.

The organizations will carry out a series of activities ahead of the runway, including “motivational” workshops and a string of happenings in preparation for the main event, Rengel added.

The show will feature creations by renowned Bolivian fashion designers, including Gloria Thaine, Ana Isabel Parra, Glenda Yañez, Liliana Mustafa and Narda Paredes, among others.
