Research is the best way for the medical community to discover better methods to detect, prevent, or treat cancer, or to improve quality of life. As the only national nonprofit advocacy organization focused on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, FORCE has a strong commitment to promoting research to benefit our community by advocating for more research funding, helping researchers enroll people into research studies, educating people about available research studies, and broadcasting new and relevant research findings back to our community.
New discoveries are made through careful study of different medical options to determine benefits, limitations, and risks compared with current standard care. Participating in research allows people to contribute to medical knowledge and offers the opportunity to receive cutting-edge care.
