Last Wednesday, the Catwalk for Cancer was held at the Paseo, Camana Bay, to support the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and Jasmin Palliative & Hospice Care.

According to Health City Cayman Islands, one of the event partners, the evening of elegance, glam, and fun, aimed at increasing cancer awareness, raised approximately $20,000. This will be donated to the Cayman Islands Cancer Society and Jasmine Palliative & Hospice Care.

Addressing those in attendance, Health City’s Head of Sales & Marketing, Rebekah Brooks, said that while some may be indifferent to fashion, “the reality of cancer is such that we cannot be indifferent.”

“We must show up, support, advocate, and make a difference whether we’re wearing flats or stilettos, an LBD or a maxi,” she added.

Brooks noted that as fashion is ever-evolving, so too must healthcare.

She highlighted that Health City continues to set trends in healthcare, most recently with the opening of its Radiation Oncology Centre, which features the latest technology in the form of a Siemens TruBeam Varian Lineae Accelerator.

The new facility will provide advanced cancer care for locals, removing the need to travel overseas.

She iterated: “With cancer developing and progressing in an evolutionary manner, it is incumbent on those of us in the medical field to ensure our treatment solutions are also evolving. Health City remains committed to being ‘on-trend,’ providing innovative and successful treatment options for our patients.”

Other partners with Health City for the event included Sand Angels, Am?, West Indies Wine Company, Jardel and Chad Monro, and Sannyasa Yoga & Acrobatics Ltd, whose beautiful dancers lit up the night.
