Welcome to FORCE,

If you’re reading this, you’re probably worried about your risk for cancer. Whether you’re just beginning to explore this issue or you’re further along in your journey, this page is addressed to you. Thinking about cancer or dealing with cancer risk can be scary or overwhelming, but we believe that receiving information, resources and support is comforting, empowering, or even life-saving. Take a deep breath and try to relax. As you navigate this site, take time to digest the information and determine what it means for you. Feel free to print out pages and share them with your health care team. Check out our page of FORCE programs for more information, support, or resources.

FORCE was founded on the principle that no one should face hereditary cancer alone. As a fourteen year survivor of hereditary breast cancer, I know that confronting cancer risk can be a complex, confusing, and highly individual journey. Everyone’s path is slightly different because there are no guaranteed prevention, screening, or treatment options. FORCE does not have definitive answers or medical solutions -- unfortunately, no one does at this time -- but we can help you navigate these uncharted waters by equipping you with resources, information, and support.
