More than 250 MD Anderson supporters brushed up on the latest trends in August, when The Houston Galleria and MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital hosted the sixth annual Back to School Fashion Show. Runway models in A-plus styles included young cancer patients and their siblings, MD Anderson staff and Page Parkes models, while KHOU-TV's Mia Gradney provided commentary. Special guest Michael Roth, M.D., associate professor of Pediatrics, described the fashion show as an opportunity, along with enrichment programs such as school, art, camp and sports, to help patients experience the simple joys of "being a kid."
Before the models took to the runway, Roth introduced a short video, "We Keep Kids Running," developed by orthopedic surgeon Valerae Lewis, M.D., that features a number of patients who participated in the fashion show.
