Visit our Chat Room
Welcome to the FORCE chat room
Newcomers are welcome! Please join us to share experiences and support, ask questions, or just to visit and get to know other people facing a high risk of breast and ovarian cancer.
If you're new to chats or to this subject area, you may see some unfamiliar abbreviations or terms. In some cases, these will be the same sort of thing used in chats elsewhere on the Internet -- for example, OTOH means "on the other hand" and LOL means "laughing out loud." You can find lists of these terms at Learn the Net and other websites.
Our own shorthand
Sometimes we use our own shorthand for terms related to our particular concerns. For instance, we often write "bc" for breast cancer and "ovca" for ovarian cancer. (Okay, so we're not consistent!) We've created a glossary of these terms to get you started.
