Thousands of people walk each year to raise funds for breast cancer. Survivor Molly MacDonald is walking- a fashion runway- to raise awareness for breast cancer and her non profit The Pink Fund.

The Pink Fund’s Molly MacDonald is participating in Fashion for the Cure Inspirational Runway Show Fundraiser on September 24 in West Hollywood as one of their survivor models. MacDonald will be sporting fashions by Diane von Furstenberg, known by DVF.

The Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure is presenting the eighth annual Fashion for the Cure fundraiser at Smashbox Studios in West Hollywood with the Diane von Furstenberg Cruise/Pre-Spring Collection 2009/2010 in a high-energy runway show.

In order to prepare for her runway appearance, MacDonald is training with Body Pure of Birmingham.

The Pink Fund is an organization that provides short-term financial aid to women, men and families who are in active treatment for and recovery from breast cancer. An innovative and unparalleled program, The Pink Fund makes direct payments for rent, COBRA, car and utilities on behalf of families in need.

 No one knows better about the need than The Pink Fund Founder Molly MacDonald.

As a working mother of five, MacDonald underwent cancer treatment. “What I learned from my own situation, and confirmed by other women in treatment, is that the financial fallout from breast cancer causes stress often as devastating as the disease.  I founded The Pink Fund to help women in treatment so they could focus their mental and emotional energy on healing and recovery,” said MacDonald.
