The Waxman: A packed house of over 950 people- in the mood to have a very good time---gathered to raise money benefitting the SWCRF-an international organization dedicated to curing and preventing cancers---to supporting pioneering research focusing on the causes of cancers and reprogramming cancer cells...and delivering minimally non-toxic treatments to cure patients.

Honorees this year included a familiar face-Carmen Marc Valvo-himself a ten year cancer survivor---and pal with a woman involved with the Foundation, hence the connection...
Carmen Marc Valvo

Valvo has been actively working with other non-profits dedicated to cancer eradication and detection---and his fashion world of connections brings a different group on board--- to the Waxman---nice.
