Welcome

Hi! I am Judy Calabria and I am the Houston Volunteer Outreach Leader for FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered! If you have any questions or are in need of support or information, please feel free to e-mail me. I am happy to chat about available resources, information, and support that you may find helpful. As you navigate your hereditary breast, ovarian and related cancers experience, know that you are not alone and that you can reach out at any time. I look forward to hearing from you.

You can also be matched to someone who shares a similar experience as you through FORCE’s Peer Navigation Program. Learn more at www.facingourrisk.org/pnp.
