Do you have a family history of breast and/or ovarian cancer? Have you tested positive for a BRCA mutation? 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. Local area FORCE is holding our quarterly get-together and we hope you can join us!

Learn from other people 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.

Please note in your e-mail if you will be attending the support meeting, dinner, or plan to do both.

It's Kickin' Cancer time again!

For the 5th year we are excited to be joining forces with the Lynne Cohen Foundation Kickin' Cancer 5K Walk/Run and Family Expo

In the past four years Team FORCE has raised close to $60,000 to help fund programs for the women and families bravely facing breast and ovarian cancer.


This year there is no registration fee. So come join us and start your own personal fundraising page. Help us reach our goal of raising $20,000!!

Money raised by Team FORCE will go to the following:
· 50% to FORCE to fund ovarian cancer related activities.
· 50% to the Lynne Cohen Foundation to fund genetic testing for the under served/uninsured at the Lynne Cohen

Preventive Care Clinic for Women's Cancers at USC/Norris Cancer Center in Los Angeles and for ovarian cancer research.

The Lynne Cohen Foundation is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art, comprehensive patient care for women and families at increased risk of ovarian and breast cancer through the Lynne Cohen Preventive Care Programs; supporting research aimed at finding an ovarian cancer early detection test; and to supporting and enabling highly-focused, multi-institutional research which will lead to effective prevention strategies and interventions to improve the quality of life and survival rates of women with ovarian and breast cancer.
