One of our main goals through screenings of One Year Later is to provide a forum for doctors, researchers and all levels of healthcare professionals across the United States, Canada and beyond to share new developments in ovarian cancer research and to engage on a non-clinical level with patients, survivors and their loved ones. Here, they can discuss the emotional challenges of cancer survivorship. Our larger mission is to raise funds for ovarian cancer research through a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization called In My Brother’s Shoes, Inc. (originally founded in conjunction with our first short film in which donations are given to military veterans groups). We are dedicated to helping individuals and families suffering from the many forms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Donations are tax-deductible.
