Special Topic: Preparing for an Oophorectomy and Coping with Medical Menopause
Join us for a discussion about how you can prepare for an oophorectomy (surgical removal of the ovaries) and how you may be affected by medical menopause following the surgery. In addition to addressing these topics, there will be time to network and share with other members of the hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC) community. This meeting is for women only.
Do you have a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer? Have you tested positive for a BRCA mutation? Are you considering genetic testing? You are not alone.
FORCE exists to improve the lives of individuals and families facing hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. Local 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.
