Bryce Duffy, 8, won’t be in his second grade classroom at Hilltop Elementary School in Argyle on Friday, April 4. He’ll be enjoying lunch with Dallas Cowboy legends Troy Aikman, Roger Staubach and Rudy Gatlin, plus current Cowboys players and cheerleaders.

Bryce, who recently moved to Lantana from Argyle, is one of 21 special children selected to participate in the 26th Annual Children’s Cancer Fund Luncheon. 

The annual fundraiser will feature a special runway fashion show, sponsored by Dillard’s and produced by RSC Show Productions, with proceeds dedicated to help raise money for pediatric cancer research and treatment programs at Children’s Medical Center and UT Southwestern Medical Center, benefiting children worldwide.

Ultimately, the charity will help Bryce and the other 20 children first-time fashion runway models, all of whom are young cancer patients in varying stages of treatment, finished with treatment, or in remission. They will walk the runway with celebrity escorts and sponsors, including Honorary Co-Chairmen Aikman and Staubach.

Bryce was diagnosed with pilocytic astrocytoma, a tumor of the brain stem.

In addition, Children’s Cancer Fund 2014 Inspiration Book will be for sale at the luncheon. The book will include original artwork by young cancer patients, inspired by their experiences with cancer. Bryce’s artwork has been selected to be featured in the 2014 Inspiration Book. He would like to be an artist when he grows up.

Bryce’s hobbies are Cub Scouts and drawing and his favorite subject in school is math. He has older twin sisters and on weekends, he likes to play with his cousin Phillip, draw and play games on his iPad.  

Bryce is excited to meet famous people at the fashion show. If he could visit anywhere in the world, he would visit the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas, because it looks like so much fun. If Bryce could meet someone famous, he would choose Tony Romo, because he’s a Dallas Cowboy.

The Children’s Cancer Fund’s 26th Annual Luncheon is on Friday, April 4, in the Chantilly Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole Hotel, 2201 Stemmons Fwy. in Dallas.

Tickets for the event are $150 per person, or $1,250 per table of ten.  The Inspiration Book will be unveiled at the luncheon and will be available for purchase for $15 a copy through the Children’s Cancer Fund at 972-664-1450 or www.childrenscancerfund.com.
