RSVP Marlene for the address and directions

Joining us will be Jenny Lester, MPH who is the Research Manager for the Women's Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She will tell us about some of their exciting research studies, including improved ovarian cancer screening, BRCA1 & cardiovascular disease and why the same gene can create a variety of clinical experiences.

Learn from others 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.

Do you have a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer? Have you tested positive for a BRCA mutation or 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.

We hope you can join us!
