Creating a safe space to talk about cancer risk

Sue Friedman, founder of FORCE, Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered, talks about surviving breast cancer, and how it led her to create a resource for at risk women to learn, ask questions and share their stories. After learning about her BRCA status, she became appalled at the preponderance of misinformation and at the lack of support available for those with hereditary cancer or hereditary cancer risk. Sue took action so that no one would have to face these risks and fears alone.

FORCE's mission is to provide support, education and advocacy for families facing hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. The annual Joining FORCEs Conference is June 23-25, 2011 in Orlando, Florida.
