Let's Fight Like Sisters: A Special Screening of N.E.D. No Evidence of Disease
No Evidence of Disease (N.E.D.) follows an unconventional rock band made up of six GYN surgeons, each passionate about music and each outraged by the wall of silence surrounding their field. The bands name comes from the words every patient dreams of hearing: No Evidence of Disease.
Interweaving the harrowing experiences and stunning courage of women, devoted families, and dedicated doctors, this documentary takes an alternative approach to a difficult topic. While the record levels of public awareness and research funding for breast cancer are to be celebrated, below the belt cancers somehow remain tabooa situation that directly kills through fatal misdiagnoses and delays. Of 90,000 women diagnosed with a GYN cancer every year, 30,000 will die. Yet, despite these cancers regularly claiming the lives of mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and partners, GYN cancer research receives a shockingly tiny fractionnot even 1%of what goes into big-business breast cancer research. Even penile dysfunction and Viagra get more attention. No Evidence of Disease is set to trigger a sea change in cancer funding and awareness, giving a loud and clear voice to the full extent of womens health needs.
As music and medicine join forces in the fight for life, our surgeons are transformed into rising rock stars, while their patients and loved ones jump on the train, infusing the struggle for survival with heart, hope and rock n roll.
