A fashion show hopes to show more than just clothes.

The Benefit Breast Cancer Survivor Fashion show hosted by Casual Friday Boutique is trying to raise awareness and save more lives.

Most of the models walking down the runway are breast cancer survivors.

At the event, they're hoping that their story gives hopes to others battling the disease.

They're also trying to promote self-examination and mammograms.

All proceeds from the event will go toward mammogram machines at the Rockingham Memorial Hospital.

The models said it's encouraging for people to see there are survivors.

Angie Williams said it's important to show those who are battling with the disease that there is hope.

"When they see that you can still be joyful, you can still live a full life and you don't have to be afraid. I don't live day by day thinking i have another diagnosis of breast cancer, that's no way to live," she said.

Rita Purkey said she does anything that helps raise awareness about breast cancer.

" [I'm] proud to do it and thankful that I'm here to be able to do it."

WHSV-TV3 News anchor Alyson Bruner was also there, supporting the cause by modeling some clothes.
