Former Riley patient creates fashion show fundraiser

Kaycee Marshall, a fashion design senior at Kent State University, says she owes a debt of gratitude to Riley Hospital for Children. She has had nine surgeries at the hospital since being born with a spine that wasn’t fully formed.

Marshall and Savanna Harrison, also a Riley Kid and nursing student at University of Southern Indiana,  are co-hosting the second annual fashion show to benefit Riley Hospital.

Cirque Des Rêves, or Circus of Dreams, is much larger this year. This year’s circus theme will be represented by various outfits, such as a strong man and a ringleader. Brianna Caprice will sing as the evening’s entertainment.
