Welcome to Thoughts from FORCE blog. Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE) is a nonprofit organization devoted to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. About 1 million Americans carry a BRCA or other gene mutation that puts them at high risk for these cancers. Through our programs FORCE provides lifesaving information, resources, and support, and advocates for families that may carry one of these cancer-causing genes.
