FORCE began so no one would have to face HBOC alone. Who could have imagined back in 1999 how much we could accomplish together? Last year, we helped more than 10,000 people through our peer support programs, and hundreds of thousands more benefited from our trusted information, advocacy and research programs. #JustGettingStarted #HBOCWeek17 #StrongerTogether

Today is National Previvor Day – when we honor those with a predisposition to cancer who have not had the disease. This year 60% of participants at our annual conference identified as previvors – empowering themselves with the unique information and network of support that FORCE provides. Courageous previvors prove by example that we have choices and that hereditary cancer does not define us. #NationalPrevivorDay17 #HBOCWeek17 #LiveLifeEmpowered #BeProactive #KnowledgeIsPower
