Welcome

Hi! We are the Genetic Expert Outreach Leader Volunteers for Orange County 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 hope to hear 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.

Be sure to sign up (on the right side of this page) to receive critical health information and learn about our local networking and educational events via e-mail so we can stay connected. Like us on our national and local Facebook pages.
