Local May_Final.qxp_002houston 4/23/15 12:20 PM Page 50 JUDY’S MISSION+SPB4OVC On the eve of World Ovarian Cancer Day, Thursday, May 7, two Houstonbased ovarian cancer foundations, JUDY’S MISSION and SPB4OVC, are co-hosting the screening of No Evidence of Disease. The award-winning documentary follows a not-so-typical rock band made up of six GYN surgeons passionate about music and outraged by the wall of silence and underfunding surrounding these types of women’s cancers. The goal of N.E.D. is to push below the belt cancers into the same limelight as breast cancer. Both the local foundations were founded in honor of their namesakes. Judy’s Mission was founded in 2010 in honor of Judith Liebenthal Robinson, PhD, a NASA scientist who despite a healthy lifestyle was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer and passed away within a year. Tickets are $20. For information and to purchase tickets, go to: www.eventbrite.com/e/ned-screening-event-tickets-16249400394 50 L O C A L | may 15
