Seattle fashion community raises $30k for young cancer patients

On the night of August 3rd, 2016 - it was all about Preston and Nikol.

Preston Scott is a six-year-old who is bravely battling relapsed Medulloblastoma (brain cancer). Nikol is just one, and is recovering from a liver transplant.

Seattle's fashion community has their eye on these two in need of help - and tah-dah - Compassion with FASHION was born.

The fashion event earlier this week brought the community together to raise money for Preston and Nikol's treatments. The event ticket included drinks, dancing, live music, auctions; and of course, a fashion show!

Third & Loom. Victoria Postolit, Elita Couture, MXN Clothing, Justin Zachary and La Belle Rêve all showcased their collections on the runway in front of a full crowd - and it was a success; over $30,000 was raised.

More about the little heroes:

Preston Scott
6-year-old Preston is very bravely battling for his life against relapsed Medulloblastoma (brain cancer). He was diagnosed in October 2014, had surgery, proton radiation and chemotherapy. He is continuing to receive treatment but none of these are expected to the cure his condition. Preston is staying hopeful as he is putting up the fight and isn’t giving up.

Nikol Culver
By the age of 1 month, Nikol was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia. It’s a rear disease of the liver and bile ducts that occurs in infants. It only can be cured with a liver transplant. During her 1st year of life, Nikol went through a Kasai surgery, two liver transplant surgeries (first donor liver failed). In all, our little fighter had 7 complicated and 3 less invasive surgeries. Right now, Nikol is on the road of long recovery after all those surgeries.

Compassion with FASHION thanks all who came and donated, and their generous event sponsors: New Castle Golf Club, All New Again®, Seattle Floral Design, Fashion District NW, Suléy Group, La Belle Rêve and many more.
