Hi! We are Washington, DC’s Impact Leader Volunteers!

If you have any questions or are in need of support or information, please feel free to email us. We are happy to chat about available resources, information, and support that you may find helpful. As you navigate your hereditary cancer experience, know that you are not alone and that you can reach out at any time. We 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. Learn more at

If you need immediate assistance, please contact Diane Rose, VP of Volunteer Programs.


Do you have a family history of cancer? Are you considering genetic testing, waiting for results, or have already tested positive for a genetic mutation?

You are not alone. Network with others who understand what you’re going through. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions or just listen in a safe, supportive environment. Feel free to bring a friend or family member.

Join us and live your life empowered!
