Kansas City resident Melanie Tate-Saccaro, a patient at Cancer Treatment Centers of American in Tulsa, will be strutting her stuff at glamourous New York Fashion Week . But it’s not about ruling the runway. For Melanie, 33, the night is about ruling disease. She has Stage 4 colon cancer with tumors on her liver. This wife and mother will be a survival model at a fundraising gala to benefit YES! (BeatLiverTumors.org), a nonprofit that supports those living with liver cancer.
