All to often we forget that breast cancer isn’t just a disease, it’s people — women and men who have dreams and aspirations they wish to achieve. They are loved one–maybe even ourselves. This film gives you an inside into what is often overlooked — and sometimes lost — after hearing the diagnosis. However, we can always found once more.
Faces of Breast Cancer premiered in October 2019 along with the play, Breast Cancer Diaries and the documentary film, Messages of Hope written and produced by Dr. Charley Ferrer.
Dr. Charley Ferrer is a world-renowned Clinical Sexologist & Sex Therapist. She is the award-winning author of several books on relationships, sexuality, self-empowerment and breast cancer. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 2016 and thyroid cancer in 2017. Frustrated with the lack of information and treatment options provided to cancer patients, Dr. Charley created the Cancer Tamer Foundation which focuses on education and empowerment. In 2019, she wrote the play, Breast Cancer Diaries which premiered to a sold out crowd on Staten Island & Manhattan along with two documentary files: Messages of Hope and Faces of Breast Cancer. Her philosophy on breast cancer is realizing that cancer is not an “outside force” invading but an “inside force” residing. “It’s in our blood, our breasts, our DNA. In our attempts to destroy it, we are inadvertently destroying ourselves.” she states. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about cancer is turning heads, creating controversy, and reminding women and men that we should not be at war with our body!
