FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 71 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE EDUCATION OF DEE DEE RICKS

Dee Dee Ricks was living her dream—she had a successful business, two beautiful kids, and a whirlwind social life. Then, at age 39, breast cancer changed her world. Director Perri Peltz candidly tracks the emotional rebirth of a survivor determined to help make life easier for less fortunate cancer patients even as she undergoes her own grueling treatment.

After the Movie: Join Dee Dee Ricks, producer Lisa Cohen, president and founder of the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care and Prevention Harold P. Freeman M.D., and other public health advocates as they discuss the critical issue of breast cancer treatment for the poor and uninsured. Moderated by the film's director, Perri Peltz.
