Jan Finer was a member of FORCE, and a volunteer coordinator for our Tampa Bay Outreach Network. Jan believed that information about cancer genetics can be empowering and life-saving. She worked tirelessly to raise awareness about hereditary breast and ovarian cancer, even while she was undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer. Tragically, Jan died at age 49 of ovarian cancer.
We have created the Jan Finer Memorial Fund in Jan's memory. Donations to FORCE are tax-deductible. 100% of the fund donations will go towards providing lifesaving education and outreach focused on hereditary breast and ovarian cancer.
To donate via check, please put Jan Finer in the memo field, make check payable to FORCE and mail to: FORCE, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, 16057 Tampa Palms Bvd., W, Tampa, FL 33647.
These programs were paid for in part or fully by the Jan Finer Memorial Fund
