About LEMATA – “Models for the Cure”


To provide a powerful and dynamic message of love, hope and healing to those challenged by physical, mental and emotional illnesses and disabilities by bringing an awareness to all through the dynamics of modeling.

Models for the Cure

8293151_origModels for the Cure” is a fashion show and fundraiser designed to be a public tribute to our models by honoring them and the many individuals in our communities who are cancer survivors, “Our Champions,” battling or who have battled various types of cancer(s) as they continue to thrive and survive. This event will showcase cancer survivors who are our “Models for the Cure” in their everyday existence and heighten the awareness of cancer in our community.

Cancer survivors are our loved ones, parents, siblings, children, colleagues, neighbors, friends and community leaders who continue to walk with dignity after having been stricken with some form of this disease. Their inner beauty, integrity and fortitude leave a legacy for their loved ones and others.
