Panama City Beach-It's a tradition that gets better every year. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Tuesday night dozens of survivors took to the stage for a very special fashion show.

WJHG's Donna Bell emceed the 3rd Annual Breast Cancer Survivor Fashion Show at Arnold High School. The show is a celebration of life for these ladies who have battled breast cancer and won. It's also a fundraiser to help cancer patients who are still fighting the disease.

Hundreds came out to support their loved ones and see the latest fashions provided by Dillard's. "This is our 3rd time to do this. All of the models are breast cancer survivors and they have a blast doing this," said Kim Lydick of the Gulf Coast Cancer Treatment Center. "I'm happy to be a survivor and I'm happy to be around some of these other survivors and we can share our stories and we all learn a little bit more and we just get better doing this," said Beth Edeburn, a cancer survivor. "Oh I think it's fun. It was great fun. It was fun going and tyring on new clothes at Dillard's and the girls were real helpful. I think it's a great thing," said Patti Ellis, also a cancer survivor.

This Saturday is the "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" walk at Aaron Bessant Park at Pier Park. It's not too late to sign up and get involved. Registration begins at 8:00, the walk begins at 9:30. WJHG has a big team and would love to see you out there.
