Join the Breast Cancer Coalition for a special evening!
Full Circle is a documentary film featuring three breast cancer survivors. Directed by Patrick Norman, an award- winning director based in Los Angeles whose work has won film festival awards, Full Circle reveals how mastectomy tattoos empower breast cancer survivors to see past their scars and get on with living.

Following the film, we are featuring a panel discussion with two local breast cancer survivors, Deb Hennekey and Miriam Steinberg, who will share their own stories of empowerment through tattooing, along with tattoo artist TeeJay Dill of White Tiger Tattoo.
