Justin Watts, assistant professor in UNT's Department of Rehabilitation and Health Services, was a model at the American Cancer Society's You're Beautiful! Luncheon and Style Show in January at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center.
The annual event allows local cancer survivors to connect and share stories with each other and the larger community.
"It was inspiring," says Watts, who triumphed over testicular cancer after a diagnosis nearly two years ago. "Not only did it put my life into perspective, but it also was amazing to be around people who could relate to what I have been through. I also was very moved by all of the attendees' support and generosity."
The luncheon raised $103,500, which will go to local patient services, research, education and advocacy.
