NEW ORLEANS-- You Night was held on Thursday night at the Contemporary Arts Center.  "You Night" is a six month empowerment program for women survivors of cancer.  The culmination of the six months ends with "You Night," which is a cancer survivor fashion show.  This year's theme was "British Invasion."

You Night provides a network of strong support for cancer survivors.  The six month program helps these women with their confidence, self-esteem, and teaches them to appreciate their bodies, and recognize the joys of life.  You Night is about overcoming the obstacles of cancer and celebrate life.

These cancer survivors strut their strength down a mega-fashion runway in front of their families, friends, doctors, nurses, and fellow cancer survivors.  News with a Twist's Kenny Lopez and Tamica Lee hosted the event.  Kenny was dressed as Austin Powers and Tamica was dressed as Foxy Cleopatra from the popular Austin Powers movies.
