FORCE: Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered is a non-profit organization offering online support and information for women at risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. FORCE has extensive information on genetic testing and a highly active message board of FORCE members.

A note about Pre-vivors. Cancer pre-vivors are individuals who are survivors of a predisposition to cancer but who haven’t had the disease. Pre-vivors is a term created and used by FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered), to indicate women who are at high-risk for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer. If you have a family history of early age breast cancer, or ovarian cancer at any age in your family, you may be in this group. For information on this and other risk factors, please visit FORCE ( today.

Majory and Gordon - Breast Cancer Blog. Marjory is a nurse and Gordon is a family doctor. They discovered Majory`s breast cancer in April 2006 and set up this site to share their experiences. Many of the breast cancer Web sites are excellent but there are only a few that describe the day-to-day experiences of the sufferer - and none that we have seen that explore the issues of the sufferer’s partner. This is a deeply moving and very supportive site.
