Model Support Services

Runway finds ways to celebrate and highlight the lives of those affected by breast cancer and catalyze communities to support local families. In our ‘Model’ (a nod to our annual fashion show) or patient and survivor support services, we will continue to build programming and deliver a variety of services to our 50+ new models per year and the almost 250+ alumni models that we currently have in our community. Services include wellness retreats, therapy, and mentorship. Our support services are grounded in a strong evidence base that healing the ‘whole person’ is critical to recovery. Now, as our models deal with a variety of stressors and challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering a slice of ‘normalcy’ with our programming, including: virtual wine clubs, book clubs, nutrition, yoga and meditation. These experiences will provide our models with an ‘on-demand’ experience so they may choose services that are tailored to their interests and needs.

We direct funding through our Family Grants Program into services that significantly improve the lives of those who have lost a parent to breast cancer. Breast cancer crosses all demographic lines. Our Family Grants Program has a significant impact on the families we serve--who’s challenge is often two-fold: They are experiencing the real and lasting financial side effects of a loved one going through breast cancer treatment and currently fall into a systemic gap in services after the patient passed away. Recently, we took a look at those who were applying for Family Grant funding and found that a growing number were mothers who were diagnosed with Stage 4, Metastatic Breast Cancer. It seems that when someone faces an impossible reality, her first thought is her children; and the mothers who filled out our online application were focused on just that. In response to this, we have decided to expand to serve these families who are facing the stark possibility of future loss.

Population(s) Served
Parents
Economically disadvantaged people

With the help of a trained therapist and an incredible video team from Copper Hound Pictures, Runway is able to help terminal breast cancer patients make a lasting video for their children. Two mothers gave us their permission to share some of their videos with the world after they passed away in 2019 and 2020. They can be viewed on our website here: https://runwayforrecovery.org/legacyvideo/
