If I showed you a light pink ribbon, you'd probably think of breast cancer. We see it everywhere, from socks to sweatshirts. But have you ever heard of Inflammatory Breast Cancer?
You're not the only one. This type of breast cancer is pretty darn nasty (not that any cancers are nice). By the time you find out that it is cancer...specifically Inflammatory Breast Cancer...you are already at Stage 3 diagnosis.
I was first diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) three years ago. I started with a very aggressive treatment of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and radiation. I thought I was all set to go…but a year later the cancer returned. I have been on several treatments since the reoccurrence. Every time a treatment seems to work…a few weeks later it is ineffective. I am at one of those points again and need a focus to keep my thoughts and feelings positive and to be able to be active in the eradication of this disease. I don’t have control over the cancer, but I do have control over how I respond to the way it affects my life…and hopefully improve the quality of life for other patients affected by this cancer.
This fundraiser is to help build awareness and raise needed funds for research to help find a cure for Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
100% of the money that you donate will go towards Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research at Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.
We appreciate any amount you are able to donate. Every little bit helps us get closer to our goal. Please help us spread the word to people who would like to support this endeavor and life-changing journey for so many people affected by Inflammatory Breast Cancer.Dana Farber
