Whether you have been diagnosed with cancer, just learned about your hereditary cancer risk or have known about it for many years, trained FORCE volunteers are available to offer confidential support.
Hi! My name is Amy Childers and I am the West Virginia Volunteer Outreach Leader for FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered! If you have any questions or are in need of support or information, please feel free to email me. I do not hold get-togethers but I am happy to chat about available resources, services and support that you may find helpful. As you navigate your hereditary breast, ovarian and related cancer experience, know that you are not alone and that you can reach out at any time. I look forward to hearing from you.
You can also be matched to someone who shares a similar experience as you through FORCE’s Peer Navigation Program or connect with other members of the hereditary cancer community through our secure message board available 24/7.
Be sure to sign up (on the right side of this page) to receive critical health information via email so we can stay connected.
If you need immediate assistance, please contact Diane Rose, VP of Volunteer Programs.
COVID-19 Update: Please view our list of virtual resources (including FAQs, on demand webinars, important websites and much more) to help you cope with hereditary cancer during this pandemic from the safety of your own home. You are not alone. We will get through this together.
