PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5)-- There were some chic shirts and cool caps at a fashion show in Phoenix Sunday. 

But this fashion show was a special one as all of the models were children fighting cancer.

Arizona's Family got a sneak peek of the dress rehearsal at the annual Children's Cancer Fashion Show.

The event took place at the J.W. Marriott Camelback Inn near Lincoln Drive and Tatum Boulevard in Phoenix. 

The children who participated in the show are battling different stages of cancer. 

Some of the them are currently receiving treatment. While others are cancer survivors, there are other children that still have a ways to go.

Each child got to pick out their own outfit to show off to the audience.

Event organizers say it is a chance for the children to share their cancer journey but most importantly, let them be regular kids.

"The models are amazing," said Patti Luttrell with the Children's Cancer Network

"We have 45 survivors, and their brothers and sisters in the show, and each of them walk the runway with pride and share their stories and their vision of hope and the future, looking forward to all of the fun things they have planned for their lives," Luttrell added. 

The event is a fundraiser for the Children's Cancer Network.
