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.
