Peer Navigation Support Program

Sign up for FORCE's new Peer Navigation Support Program! You can now get matched to a specially trained Peer Navigator volunteer who has traveled a similar journey as yours to receive confidential 1:1 phone support and a free personalized guide of expert-reviewed resources. You no longer need to spend time researching this important information and finding someone to talk to who understands the decisions you face. This program does it all for you. In addition, participation will empower you to make informed decisions with your healthcare providers.   

This program is for you if:

  • You are considering genetic testing or have tested positive for BRCA mutation or another gene associated with increased cancer risk.
  • You have recently been diagnosed with cancer.
  • You feel alone.
  • You feel pressure to quickly learn and understand the options available to manage cancer risk.
  • You want to obtain information that could empower you to make important decisions with your healthcare providers.
  • You are a survivor, previvor or a caregiver living in the United States.

Topics that you can select for your free personalized online guide include: genetic testing, legal protections, sharing with family, cancer treatment, risk management guidelines, screening for cancer, breast reconstruction, paying for services, quality of life issues, managing menopause, support, research and more.

Joining FORCE’s Conference October 6-8, 2016 in Orlando, Florida

Attend the 10th annual conference because hereditary cancer knowledge can be life-saving. It's an  international conference designed by and for people and families affected by hereditary cancer, and will present the latest research on these cancers and a wide range of topics about making medical decisions, quality-of-life and long-term health outcomes.

Attendees include people concerned about hereditary cancer: survivors, previvors, people with a mutation or family history of cancer, patient advocates, researchers, and health care providers who treat high-risk patients.

You will have the opportunity to enroll in research, meet experts, share experiences and network with others who have first-hand understanding of all you are going through. We hope you'll join us!
