FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer EmpowermentWhere can I find information and support about hereditary cancer?

Anyone who is affected by hereditary cancer in any way can find information and support at the Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowerment (FORCE) website. FORCE was created so that nobody facing hereditary cancer concerns has to be alone.

FORCE is for those who are diagnosed with cancer, and those who are not. It is for those with known mutations, and those with a family history of cancer but no mutation has been found. It is a safe and supportive community for anyone who has been affected by hereditary cancer.

FORCE was created in 1999 by Sue Friedman, a survivor of hereditary cancer. FORCE can help those with hereditary cancer concerns “navigate these uncharted waters by equipping you with resources, information, and support.”

FORCE contains extensive information, support, and resources. Information ranges from personal stories to scientific publications. How to join a support group, find a specialist, and choose a treatment plan are available. You can find information about attending an event or becoming an advocate. There is also information and support for the family members and spouses of those affected by hereditary cancer.

You can find FORCE on the internet at www.facingourrisk.org. At the site, you can also find their contact information for their headquarters in Tampa, Florida.

This content was written by staff of HysterSisters.com by non-medical professionals based on discussions, resources and input from other patients for the purpose of patient-to-patient support.
