Support Meeting September 18, 2016 3:00-5:00pm

Buckhurst Hill, Essex  

RSVP to Louise at for address and further details

Unfortunately Sharon has been unwell recently and is currently a patient at the remarkable St. Helena Hospice where she is receiving excellent care. 

We will continue to hold the FORCE Support Group and it will be run by Sue Torok (Sharon's sister) and Louise Malina (who hosts the meeting at her beautiful home in Buckhurst Hill).
Do you have a family history of breast, ovarian or related cancers? Are you considering genetic testing or have you tested positive for a mutation in BRCA or another gene associated with increased cancer risk? You are not alone.

FORCE exists to improve the lives of individuals and families facing hereditary breast, ovarian and related cancers. UK (Essex) FORCE is holding our quarterly get-together and we hope you can join us!

Learn from other people who are navigating the hereditary cancer path. Help someone else by sharing your story. This is a great chance to meet some local area FORCE members and/or catch up with those you’ve met at previous get-togethers.
