Description

Join Ovarian Cancer Action for the UK's first screening of the documentary Pink & Blue: Colours of Hereditary Cancer at the Everyman Cinema in Hampstead, London.

Pink & Blue takes a profound look into the BRCA world. It examines what it is and how this mutation puts both women and men at a higher risk of developing numerous cancers. Qualifying for two Academy Award® considerations, the documentary is an emotional journey that takes us through the lives of women and men who are dealing with genetic mutations (BRCA 1 and 2) and their related hereditary cancers.

Watch the official 'Pink & Blue' film trailer: https://vimeo.com/128395888

The event will be hosted by BBC Journalist and News Reader Joanna Gosling. You will also hear from, and have the opportunity to ask questions to our panel of BRCA experts including:

  • Dr Jonathan Krell: Principal Investigator within the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre (OCARC) and Senior Clinical Lecturer in medical oncology at Imperial College Healthcare Trust.
  • Dr Angela George: Consultant in Oncogenetics, & Clinical Lead for the Cancer Genetics Unit, The Royal Marsden
  • Miss Joanna Franks: Consultant Breast and Oncoplastic Surgeon, University College London Hospital
  • Florence Wilks: Ovarian Cancer Action Patient Advocate
  • Katherine Taylor: Ovarian Cancer Action Cheif Executive

Your ticket will include a complementary welcome drink and box of popcorn.

Alan M. Blassberg, Wirter and Director says, “Everybody chooses different paths in the cancer realm. No two journey’s are the same. The documentary takes a profound look into the BRCA world examining what it is and how this gene mutation puts both women and men at risk for developing numerous cancers."

Jo Stanford, Cancer Prevention Officer for Ovarian Cancer Action explains “Our charity is so excited to be screening this film, and giving our guests the opportunity to ask questions of medical experts and patients during the Q&A session. It’s so important to the charity’s cancer prevention mission to raise awareness of the impact of BRCA mutations on both men and women.”
