The purpose of The IBC Network Foundation is simple:
I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer in February 2017 when I was 39 years old and breastfeeding my 15-month-old son. I was fortunate enough to be living in North Carolina, at the time, and my primary care provider was part of the Duke health system. I was also fortunate that I was diagnosed within about 10 days of my first visit to the doctor. I completed chemo, then had surgery, then had radiation. My surgery took place the day before my 40th birthday and I was discharged on my birthday. I now happily celebrate each birthday because I am thankful to be living. I just celebrated my 2nd post-cancer birthday this past July.
Over the last couple of years, I have volunteered with the Duke Inflammatory Breast Cancer Consortium whenever possible. The Hunt for Hope is a beautiful collaboration with The IBC Network Foundation and the Duke Inflammatory Breast Cancer Consortium.
