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! My name is Annette Seelig and I am the San Francisco Volunteer Outreach Leader 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 me. I am 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. I 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.
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 Facebook.
If you need immediate assistance, please contact Diane Rose, VP of Volunteer Programs.
