Gail Ballesteros-Shrive, CEO of GB Shrive Designs and host of “Evolution of Fashion” will again partner with Heaven’s Door. This foundation was started in 2005 by her friend Ms. Evans, an ovarian, breast and spinal cancer survivor after coming home from a mastectomy. HDCF promotes “Diva Aftercare™” paying for spa visits to ladies going through life threatening illnesses, including cancer surgeries and/or treatments to their spa of choice as well as providing accommodations to long distance cancer patients coming for treatment. Come see her amazing fashions worn by both professional models walking the runway hand in hand with patients in the middle of their fight whether by surgery, chemo or radiation.
