Summary

The band No Evidence of Disease (N.E.D.) was formed in 2008. The group of six women's cancer surgeons started playing original music to help create awareness and education for women's cancers and have gone on to release two albums. The film chronicles the lives of the band as they seek to raise awareness for gynecologic cancers through their music. The band is composed of six gynecologic cancer surgeons from across the United States: Dr. John Boggess (vocals, guitar), Dr. Joanie Hope (vocals), Dr. Nimesh Nagarsheth (drums, percussion), Dr. William "Rusty" Robinson (bass, harmonica), Dr. John Soper (guitar), and Dr. William Winter (guitar). They hail from all over the United States, including North Carolina, New Jersey, Washington, and Alaska. The film shows the doctors over the course of a year as they balance songwriting, online rehearsals, concerts, and the release of their second album with their work as gynecologic oncologists. Many of their patients are also portrayed in the film.

Awareness efforts

The mission of the band, and also the film, is to raise awareness for women's cancers. Dr. Nagarsheth has said that the documentary "is just another added facet to what we're doing... The documentary is going to reach a lot of people... it's just another way to get the word out.

Several other projects related to gynecologic cancer awareness are connected to the film. A 16-minute informational film called What Every Woman Should Know features the doctors of N.E.D. and educates women about the signs and symptoms of gynecologic cancers, and encourages them to know their bodies and take control of their own health.

The filmmakers also became involved in the creation of Globeathon, an international walk to raise awareness for gynecologic cancers.
