Inaugural Humphrey Bogart Film Festival Shares Surprising, Life-Saving Message
Date:5/3/2013

(PRWEB) May 03, 2013

Maybe someone should look at you, kid. That’s the message of the new movie trailer premiering at the First Annual Humphrey Bogart Film Festival this weekend in Key Largo, Florida. In the trailer shown before every film that is screened at the festival, Stephen Bogart, the only son of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, asks viewers to consider whether they may be at risk for developing Esophageal Cancer.

It’s also one of the deadliest forms of cancer – one of the top ten cancer killers of American men. But when it’s discovered early, or in the precancerous stage known as Barrett's Esophagus, new treatments can often lead to cure. That’s why the message of the Bogart movie trailer is so important. These movie screenings encourage medical screenings that could save lives. Bogart invites viewers to download ECAN’s free Guide for Patients designed to help individuals determine their risk. It’s available at http://www.ecan.org.

"We are honored to have our production unveiled at this important event,” said ECAN President and CEO Mindy Mintz Mordecai. “The commitment and support we have received from Stephen Bogart and the Humphrey
