Fashion for a cure is a charity that aims to raise awareness of breast cancer, and to raise funds to research the cure or prevention of breast cancer.[1][2][3][4][5]

The organization encourages local groups to host fashion shows where all the models are cancer survivors.[1] JaQuitta Williams, a newscaster in Atlanta, appeared at a Fashion for a cure event and sang the Destiny's Child song "Survivor" after taking an 18-month leave of absence to beat her own cancer.

CBS Atlanta anchor JaQuitta Williams strode to the stage as a presenter while belting out Destiny's Child’s “Survivor” as aptly as any singer there. The former WSB-TV reporter returned to the air earlier this month from an 18-month hiatus after beating breast cancer.
