STYLIST Cassandra Fisher has had a tough year, but focusing her efforts on what she does best is putting the smile back on her face.

The Canadian-born stylist is holding a fashion show next week, dedicating the money from the tickets, after costs, to her best friend's daughter Kaylee who is fighting a rare form of cancer.

"I was in a car accident six-months before that, then found out my aunt had cancer, then found out Kaylee had cancer…it really hit me hard," she said.

"At the end of the day this is my home now.

"I'm a permanent resident of Australia and this is something close to my heart and that's why it's been hard that I can't help her easily.

"A lot of Gladstonites are transient and we're always helping families and friends that aren't here."

On show will be a fashion range never seen in Gladstone before and a fitness collection from Brazil.

Some outfits will be auctioned.
