Let’s look at a Case Study for our documentary, No Evidence of Disease (N.E.D), the story of six cancer surgeons on a rock’n’ roll mission to raise awareness of women’s cancers. The film was supported in part by the Inova Health Foundation, GOG Foundation, Marjie’s  Fund and others, but we would not have been able to finish it without the contributions of people like you. Here are some highlights of the impact you made:

  • There have been over 2,200 broadcast across the United States, to date. That is a potential audience of 230 million people. The program will continue to be broadcast for years. A Spanish-language version also aired on VME TV.

  • On World Cancer Day (Feb. 4, 2015), we partnered with Regal Cinemas to screen the film in 45 cities in the United States and Canada. Each screening was accompanied by a discussion and Q&A with advocates and health professionals.

  • In addition to World Cancer Day, N.E.D. has also screened in over 150 communities and in theaters across the world, often targeting underserved populations that do not have access to this vital information.

  • With your support, we produced an informative multimedia companion: What Every Woman Should Know, a 16-minute video on the signs and symptoms of all major GYN cancers. This video is available online free-of-charge and is also divided into separate modules by disease state. It is also available in English, Spanish and Arabic. We also created a free guide available in print or online with questions that every woman should ask on her annual visit to the gynecologist.

  • Our work on N.E.D. led to our partnership with the Globe-Athon to End Women’s Cancers, the world’s first international grassroots effort to unify women’s cancer awareness efforts by staging walks, parades, lectures and other events all over the world. With over 80 participating countries worldwide, N.E.D. has truly become the soundtrack of the movement.

Together, we have made a crack in the wall of silence that surrounds below-the-belt cancers. With your help, we will be able to go even further.
