Great article Sue. I know you were one of the first people to contact me directly from bc.org. You helped me make decisions about my reconstruction and getting my genetic test done. Since then I have found out I am BRCA negative which I was able to share with family members. It really helped my mother out as well because she was sure she gave me bc.

Thanks so much Sue! I have forwarded your article to all my family members who are suitably alarmed, after some of my recent sleuthing into family history of relatives long lost track of.

My paternal side has revealed an all pervading history of ovarian and breast cancers---not missing one relative.

A big thank you for all your work on our behalf.

Dear Friends,
Thank you for your kind words! Just a heads up that AAA's magazine "Going Places" has an article about FORCE where I'm interviewed. In addition, I *think* (barring some other major story eclipsing us that there will be story about FORCE's new topless calendar of women after mastectomy in USA Today on Monday!

Warmest regards,
Sue
