Joining FORCES is the FORCE newsletter with news, views and supportive information for individuals concerned about hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.

The ABOUT network is the first research registry developed by and for the hereditary cancer community. You decide how much or little you wish to be involved, and choose how to become involved:
Patients make up the majority of governance of the ABOUT network; volunteer patient advocates sit on the steering committee and all work groups. Graduates of the FORCE Research Advocate Training program are eligible to apply to serve on ABOUT governing bodies.
