Support Meeting December 9, 2015 6:30-8:00 pm
Cancer Support Community
4918 Cooper Road
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242
RSVP to Brandi at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be a Certified Genetic Counselor(s) from Children's Hospital Medical Center Hereditary Cancer Program, St. Elizabeth Hereditary Cancer Program, Good Samaritan and/or Tri-Health in attendance and able to answer any questions and to offer their insight.
As always, we will talk about anything that comes up and offer support, however, this will be a much more informal meeting because we will be having our ANNUAL HOLIDAY PARTY! We will use this time to celebrate the holidays, the passing year, each other, and the friendships that have formed. Feel free to bring your favorite treat or snack to share and we’ll see what kind of games (and maybe even prizes) we can come up with!
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.
