Award winning producer and filmmaker, Alan Blassman has launched a Kickstarter campaign to create his film Pink and Blue, a documentary about breast cancer and the BRCA gene mutation in both men and women.
We are currently producing the Pink & Blue documentary to educate and inform people about the BRCA mutation and male breast cancer. Pink & Blue takes a profound look into the BRCA world. Renowned doctors examine what it is and how this mutation puts both women and men at a higher risk of developing numerous cancers…Breast cancer is not just a female disease. Male breast cancer patients endure some of the most ridiculous and uncomfortable situations. Why do men with breast cancer have to feel shame and embarrassment based on societal ‘norms?’ It is tough enough being diagnosed with male breast cancer in such a pink world. Any emotional layers outside of the treatment add undue anxiety, stress and fear.
This is very important issue, particularly since the topic of breast cancer hits very close to home. The more people who know about the BRCA mutation could mean that more people can get screened earlier. Knowledge is power and this film promises to be very powerful.
