Cancer Survivor Dances Down Runway

Subscribe to Lite Rock 96.9 on

The last place you would expect to see a cancer survivor is on the runway at at a show during New York Fashion Week, but that is exactly where New Jersey resident and stage 4 cancer patient Roseanne Gianalella found herself dancing and modeling a few weeks ago.

One of eleven cancer patients from across the country, “Resilient Rosie” as she calls herself, represented  the non-profit group “Say YES to HOPE” at SM Global Catwalk to show that a disease that once carried a certain death sentence now has resources, options, and support. Samina Mughal, President and CEO of SMGlobal Catwalk states, “The “Surviving in Fashion” showcase is a heartwarming tribute to cancer patients and a wonderful way to witness where fashion and philanthropy meet.”

Every part of my life changed since I was diagnosed with cancer the second time,” says Rosanne. “I am definitely stronger, wiser and extremely grateful to modeling on the runway!” says Resilient Rosie as she refers to herself.
