Shopping Soiree

Presented by: Howard University Cancer Center, Walish Gooshe and Annie's Collections Boutique

Stand by Her, is a local shopping event that shine’s light not only on breast cancer survivors but on caregivers and supporters. Walish Gooshe is taking the initiative to recognize caregivers, supporters and survivors, highlighting the importance of caregivers improving the quality of life of patients while largely increasing breast cancer survival rates. We would like for supporters to come out and stand by their loved one while sharing her story as well as enhance her clothing and beauty needs.
