Who are we, and
How Are we Different
HBOC's sole focus is on familial breast and ovarian cancer. HBOC is the national organization which is devoted exclusively to awareness, education, support and research in the domain. Currently HBOC is exclusively volunteer run. All donated funds are used for the benefit of our charitable programs.

Our corporate brand is composed of the pink breast cancer ribbon, and the teal ovarian cancer ribbon fashioned into a double helix, which is the structure of DNA- the building block of the genetic blueprint.
