Wherever you are in the process of determining your cancer risk or risk management options, there is a good chance that others are going through the same thing and available to offer support.
FORCE is a resource for the entire community affected by hereditary cancer. We welcome people from all backgrounds and situations. Our growing community is composed of individuals with unique family histories, medical histories, and risk management choices. Our diversity makes us strong, but it also increases the likelihood that people will hold different opinions on the issues. The FORCE mission includes offering support, education, advocacy, and awareness. Support is the keystone of our message boards. Although we may not always agree with each other, it is important that we respect the opinions and choices of others. With our continued expansion, we have updated our message board policies to ensure a supportive environment for all. Please read the information below regarding these updated policies.
FORCE has message board moderators composed of volunteers who have been chosen for their fair and balanced perspective. They review questions and concerns about posts or other communications. Based on their review, if a post or communication is deemed inappropriate, various actions may be taken, including removing posts, issuing warnings, or asking violators to leave the community. All decisions will be final. Examples of inappropriate communications include personal attacks, promoting a personal agenda, inflammatory remarks, proselytizing, coercion, or disrespectful comments.
For those reading the boards we offer the following suggestions and reminders:
We reserve the right to deny access to the message boards to anyone who violates these guidelines or is otherwise disruptive to the community.
