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.

Researchers at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center are conducting a study to understand differences in health among women with a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 who decide to have surgery to remove the ovaries and fallopian tubes compared with women who decide not to have this surgery.

You may be eligible to participate in this research study.

Here’s what the study involves:

· Opportunity to receive information about your cardiovascular and bone health

· Complete questionnaires about your medical history

· You will be paid up to $475 for your participation in the study

· Information will be kept confidential

If you are interested in being in this study, please email the research coordinator, Stephanie, or call 415-297-3114.

You can also read more about our study.   Thank you so much for your interest in our study!
