September 21st: Someone You Love Film Screening with Expert Panel

The ICC District 6 Regional Cancer Control Coalition and Indiana University East are hosting a free screening of the award-winning documentary, Someone You Love. This eighty-minute film takes a look into the lives of five women affected by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), the widely misunderstood and controversial virus that causes several types of cancer.

HPV may be the most widespread, misunderstood and potentially dangerous epidemic that most people do not understand. Eighty percent of all people under 50 years of age will have a strain of the virus at some point in their lives and most will not even realize they have it. Cervical cancer is almost exclusively caused by HPV and it is the 2nd leading cancer in women. Worldwide, cervical cancer kills over 250,000 women every year. Meet five unforgettable women whose lives have been changed forever and even interrupted by this deadly virus. Although this film features women, HPV does not discriminate and impacts males as well as females.

This screening is open to all, ideal for parents with children between 11-18 years of age, and is free of cost. Register here.

We are also proud to host a live panel session after the film to share their stories and answer your questions. Panelists include:

  • Kirk and Brenda Forbes: These parents are featured in the film and share their story about coping with the loss of their daughter, Kristen, and trying to prevent this from happening to others like her.
  • Gregory Zimet, PhD, Co-Director, HPV Center for Survey Research. Professor of Pediatrics and Clinical Psychology with the IU School of Medicine
  • Jeevan Sekhar, MD: Medical Oncologist in Richmond, Indiana.
  • Laurie Weinzapfel, Director of Program and Quality Improvement with MDWise

We welcome you to join us and share this opportunity within your networks. This film could save your life or someone you love.
