Personalized Support Program Helps Those With, Or At Risk For, Hereditary Cancer

Advocacy Groups | <b>FORCE</b>

Cancer survivors, people at high risk for cancer and their caregivers need support and resources personalized to their situation. FORCE’s confidential Peer Navigation Program connects these individuals with trained volunteers who provide support and resources by phone or email.

Based on the information submitted through a secure survey, individuals are matched with a trained Peer Navigator who shares similar experiences and “gets” someone’s personal situation.

In addition to personalized conversations, each participant receives a guide filled with expert-reviewed resources. This information helps individuals navigate various decision-making processes and provides materials to share with other family members. Topics include:

Genetic counseling/genetic testing

Guidelines for cancer risk management and treatment

Quality of life concerns

Research studies and clinical trials

Support and resources

This program is for individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer, just learned about their hereditary cancer as well as those who have known about it for many years.
