Director Steven Bernstein stopped by Roswell Park Cancer Institute for a tour before the charity screening of his new film Decoding Annie Parker on September 26, with proceeds benefitting the Familial Ovarian Cancer Registry at RPCI. The Buffalo native wrote and produced the movie, starring Helen Hunt, that tells the true story of two remarkable women, Berkley-based geneticist Dr. Mary-Claire King and Annie Parker (played by Samantha Morton), each touched by hereditary breast cancer in her own way: Ms. Parker battles the disease and Dr. King’s genetic research leads to the discovery of the BRCA1 breast cancer gene.
