Our Impact

Our Mission

FORCE's Mission is: To improve the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast, ovarian, and related cancers.

FORCE has become an important part of my family's life. The information I learn from the FORCE website and the support I get is invaluable to me and my previvor daughter.

FORCE Volunteer and Previvor

To this end, FORCE has eight mission objectives:

  • To provide people with resources to determine whether they are at high risk for breast, ovarian, and related cancer due to genetic predisposition, family history, or other factors.
  • To provide information about options for managing and living with these risk factors.
  • To provide support for people as they pursue these options.
  • To provide support for families facing these risks.
  • To raise awareness of hereditary breast, ovarian, and related cancer.
  • To represent the concerns and interests of our high-risk constituency to the cancer advocacy community, the scientific and medical community, the legislative community, and the general public.
  • To promote research specific to hereditary cancer.
  • To reduce disparities among underserved populations by promoting access to information, resources and clinical trials specific to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
