Important Milestones Helping the Hereditary Cancer Community

Advocacy Groups | <b>FORCE</b>

FORCE is meeting the needs of individuals and families facing hereditary breast, colorectal, endometrial, ovarian, pancreatic and prostate cancers through our advocacy, education, research and support efforts.

The second half of 2021 was extremely busy for us at FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, as we continued to expand our work on behalf of the entire hereditary cancer community. We are meeting the needs of individuals and families facing hereditary breast, colorectal, endometrial, ovarian, pancreatic and prostate cancers through our advocacy, education, research and support efforts.

As an example, our educational programs reached thousands of people these last six months. Our virtual Joining FORCE’s Against Hereditary Cancer Conference had more than 2,240 attendees and many more can watch the recorded conference sessions that are now available for on-demand viewing. Our XRAY program reached 50,000 people, sharing reliable information and reviews of cancer research reported in the media.

We also promoted 96 research studies to our community and helped match people with inherited mutations to treatment, prevention, detection, quality of life and other studies for which they were eligible.

Please read our most recent impact statement to learn about the other things we’ve accomplished in the areas of support, advocacy, education and research — all with an eye toward our core organizational value of diversity, equity and inclusion, as we are committed to improving health outcomes for all members of our community.
