Caitlin Brodnick - Dangerous Boobies: Breaking Up with My Time-Bomb Breasts — in the Den

Upcoming Event
Friday, October 20, 2017 at 8:00 pm

Dubbed “the Breast Cancer Comedy Ambassador” by Broad City’s co-creator, Ilana Glazer, Brodnick tested positive for BRCA-1 in her late twenties and chose to undergo a preventative double mastectomy. Then the New York-based comedian, performer, and self-described “previvor” partnered with Glamour to make a six-part documentary about her experience. Screw You Cancer is as refreshingly defiant as it sounds. The film had seven million views in its first year and won an Emmy and a National Magazine Award for Best Video. Brodnick’s memoir, like the docu-series, is a courageous, inspiring, and hilarious account of her diagnosis, surgery, and recovery. It’s also a candid and witty meditation on breasts, breast size, and identity. As part of Breast Cancer Awareness month, join Caitlin for a discussion of BRCA, body acceptance, and making informed decisions about your health.
