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. Minnesota area 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.
