"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I was shocked," says Ronnie Hiller, cancer survivor and fashion show model. "But I decided that I wasn't going to let cancer take over my life. I'm participating in this fashion show to show other women with breast cancer that even with cancer you can still look and feel normal, engage in all your favorite activities, and be a vital member of your community."
