#CANCERLAND x ANAONO 3RD ANNUAL NEW YORK FASHION WEEK FUNDRAISER

WE HAVE BIG NEWS!

We are so excited to announce that AnaOno will once again be a part of Project #Cancerland’s fundraiser show at New York Fashion Week benefitting Metavivor! We love and trust the mission of Metavivor, and their initiative of putting 100% of donations towards funding research to treat & cure metastatic breast cancer. We are so grateful to participate in our third year of this groundbreaking show on February 10th! 

The past two years have been absolutely incredible and inspiring. We've been so honored to participate in this much-needed fundraiser. This year, our runway will feature all patient models who are all currently living with Stage IV or metastatic breast cancer. 

We believe in funding and furthering research and treatment of this disease. We are not just the one in eight women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We are not just the one in three who's breast cancer will metastasize. We are more than one!

At NYFW, we will tell the world that we are #NOTJUSTONE!

METAVIVOR METASTATIC BREAST CANCER STATS

Metastatic breast cancer (also known as Stage IV or advanced stage cancer) is the spread of breast cancer to other parts of the body -- most commonly to the bones, liver, lungs and/or brain. 99% of all breast cancer deaths are caused by a metastasis.  Approximately 30% of breast cancer patients metastasize, with the median survival after diagnosis being between 18-36 months. Despite these startling facts, this terminal cancer is arguably the most underfunded in the non-profit sector, with less than 5% of the monies raised put towards funding research to find better treatments and therapies for these patients.  At NYFW, we will join forces with #Cancerland and METAvivor to shine the light on the much needed awareness surrounding MBC and fund research to further the treatment of this disease so we all have a shot at surviving.

WHY WE CARE

We are so proud we've been able to bring much-needed awareness to funding research over the past two years. With the efforts of last year's show, #Cancerland funded a young investigative research grant in honor of late founder, Champagne Joy. However, we know we must do more. This year is different. For each of our models, the cancer has spread beyond the breast, also referred to as metastasis. We want to use our bodies, and the intimates, to tell the story that when cancer spreads beyond the breast, it can be life-threatening. Together, we hope to further the abilities of managing this terminal form of breast cancer. 

We believe deeply in our community and the power behind funding research to help find a cure, further treatments, and improve the quality of life for those battling the disease. Having the opportunity to see these patients come together, embracing their bodies and confidence again, is truly inspiring.  It reminds us that we are NEVER ALONE in the struggles we face.

Together at NYFW, we will continue to shatter the preconceived notions of what living with breast cancer truly looks like.

As someone with stage IV, this means everything. One of my bucket list dreams is to someday walk in the show! These Events has helped me be comfortable in my skin, seeing other patients model AnaOno, and validating that I am whole even with missing breasts. Much love ox

We know that sometimes, it may feel that our doctors don’t always get it. Especially how we may feel after leaving their office. This is not the case with Dr. Jonathan Bank, a plastic surgeon who’s on a mission to help those of us with mastectomies embrace our scars and newly reconstructed breasts (aka (f)oobs) with pride & confidence.  And we just had to share it with you!

AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY
AN ARTIST & THRIVER’S TIPS FOR RECLAIMING YOURSELF THROUGH CREATIVITY

When I found a lump in my chest in early 2010, I was ten years into a series of 26 self-portraits with four 4 images to complete. A theme of reclaiming runs throughout the project: reclaiming of self-representation, of our personal and collective stories and the power of visual image. Be it ten years or ten minutes, the essential gift is the same: focused discovery and reflection via the arts allows us to be a witness to ourselves. To hear and respond creatively to our bodies with our bodies is to reclaim a role in the healing of our bodies.
