CVS Caremark featured in documentary 'Behind the Ribbon'

WOONSOCKET - CVS Caremark will be featured in the third episode of the Gloria Gemma Foundation documentary "Behind the Ribbon" to be aired Jan. 4 at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island PBS.

Since 2011, the Pawtucket-based nonprofit has used the Hope Bus -- a pink, 38-foot recreational vehicle -- to directly reach thousands of people in all 39 towns and cities of Rhode Island. Free breast health education, awareness, and support programs are offered to the community aboard the Hope Bus, which is a comforting environment where individuals have shared their personal stories and experiences with breast cancer.

Now, the Hope Bus will make its way to Rhode Islanders in their homes when the third installment of "Behind the Ribbon" -- the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation's documentary series airs on Rhode Island PBS.

In "The Hope Bus" episode, viewers are taken behind-the-scenes and offered access to intimate stories of triumph and perseverance from breast cancer survivors, and learn the approach behind the Hope Bus and how it has become what it is today.

"Behind the Ribbon" premiered on Rhode Island PBS in March. The first two installments, "Young Survivors" and "Beauty and the Beast," can be viewed at youtube.com/GloriaGemmaVideos.
