Pretty in Pink is an event intended to not only raise awareness of the impact of cancer but to also serve as a forum to reignite the spirit of sisterhood, community and strength within cancer warriors.
Throughout the planning of this event, our models, team, and designers form bonds to cultivate self-love and the love of others that is represented through the color Pink.
Pink also symbolizes friendship, affection, harmony, inner peace, and approachability. These are essential factors necessary to overcome any obstacle in life, including cancer.
This event highlights stories of members in our community who have been touched by various forms of cancer.
We welcome you to join us in this effort and appreciate the continued support of our community.
As part of the Pretty in Pink Cancer Awareness Fashion Show, models were asked to share their stories of cancer with the hope that it will help inspire others during their journey.
Mistress of Ceremonies
Danielle Wiggins is an Emmy and Gracie award-winning journalist at WKYC Studios 3News, Northeast Ohio’s NBC affiliate. She currently serves as an anchor and reporter for the Tuesday through Saturday editions of the GO! morning show.
Before joining 3News in 2013, Danielle was the main producer and correspondent for “The Regina Brett Show” on 89.7 WKSU, Northeast Ohio’s regional NPR affiliate. "The Regina Brett Show" won multiple state and national awards under Danielle's leadership, including an Ohio Excellence in Journalism award for best radio show.
Danielle credits Regina Brett, a breast cancer survivor and advocate, for helping to save her life. Regina’s advocacy for breast self-exams and mammograms led Danielle to find a lump in her breast a month before her first scheduled mammogram. That mass turned out to be stage 1 breast cancer. After going through treatment and returning to work, Danielle teamed with WKYC 3News to launch the “Do it for Danielle” series, an initiative to encourage breast self-exams and mammograms through impactful storytelling highlighting people affected by the disease and local organizations set up to help.
Danielle holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication from Kent State University. She is a graduate of Bedford High School and lives in northern Summit County with her husband, two children, and rescue pup.
