One of my favorite conference moments was announcing the FORCE Hereditary Cancer Research Fund to drive the research that will lead to better detection, prevention, and treatment of hereditary cancer. Why do we need an HBOC-specific research fund?
As the voice of hereditary cancer, FORCE has unmatched insight into the research needs and priorities of our community. We are uniquely positioned to identify and expedite the research that will most benefit our community. Our National Hereditary Cancer Research Fund will be the first of its kind. A panel of experts and consumers will review proposals to ensure that any research funded will significantly benefit the high-risk community.
We need your help to build this fund from the ground up. Visit our website to learn more about this effort and how you can support it.
