We couldn’t very well cover inflammatory breast cancer yesterday without talking about the IBC Network Foundation today. For women who are diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, the road ahead isn’t an easy one - and based on this particular cancer’s infrequency, often a lonely one. The IBC Network Foundation is there to help women who face the unique challenges of inflammatory breast cancer.
Their mission statement is three-pronged: “to fund research regarding Inflammatory Breast Cancer; to provide an avenue to network proactive education to the general population as well as the medical community regarding Inflammatory Breast Cancer; to offer college scholarships for students who have been impacted by a diagnosis of this aggressive cancer as a way to show support to our Inflammatory Breast Cancer community.”
How could we not love this organization? They do some amazing work - but don’t just take our word for it… Go see for yourself - their website is chock full o’resources and community support.
