OAHU, Hawaii (KITV) — An Oahu woman who is a cancer survivor is hosting a Sunday fundraiser to support cancer survivors.

‘Iwalani Tzu established ‘Iwalani’s Healing Garden in 2006. She had breast cancer and was undergoing radiation at the time.

She offers her garden as a place of healing for others now. And she uses it on Sunday to raise money to support her non-profit organization called Iwalani’s Foundation, as well as a book she publishes about cancer survivors called Magnificent Women of Hawai’i.

There will be performers, a Puamana Crabbe fashion show, and more. She calls it the Pretty in Pink event, so she asks people to wear pink. The best dressed will receive a prize.

“I wanted to do something that helps my people, my women in Hawaii, have a place to come and talk about history and share their struggles,” says Tseu.

The event will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 23 in his garden at 91-2270 Old. ft. Weaver Rd. in Ewa. Tickets are $60. Call 808-428-3308 to register.
