Whether you have been diagnosed with cancer, just learned about your hereditary cancer risk or have known about it for many years, trained FORCE volunteers are available to offer confidential support.
Hi! We are Carly Miller, Sarah Spaltro, Amy Yoffe, Brenda Lam, and Marlene Cunningham and we are the Los Angeles & West Valley/Ventura Volunteer Outreach Leaders for FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered! If you have any questions or are in need of support or information, please feel free to e-mail us. We are happy to chat about available resources, information, and support that you may find helpful. As you navigate your hereditary breast, ovarian and related cancers experience, know that you are not alone and that you can reach out at any time. We look forward to hearing from you.
You can also be matched to someone who shares a similar experience as you through FORCE’s Peer Navigation Program. Learn more at www.facingourrisk.org/pnp.
