If Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is so rare, why did I learn yesterday of yet another case of IBC? This time, it’s my former boss’s daughter-in-law.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, stop what you are doing, bookmark this post to return to it, or read on. You could save the life of a woman you love.
IBC is the rarest and most aggressive form of breast cancer. It does not present with a lump. IBC may look like a rash, a bug bite, a bruise, or even mastitis. Bottom line: if a woman notices a change in her breast, she needs to contact her doctor right away to rule out IBC.
My very first post on OrganicMania was about IBC. You can read it here. I dedicated that post to two friends who are fighting IBC. And this post is dedicated to Adriana, with a million billion wishes for a full recovery.
To learn more about IBC, visit ToddlerPlanet – a wonderful blog about fighting IBC and raising kids. There you’ll find wonderful posts like this one about IBC (including links to IBC-specific cancer organizations) and this series of many posts about how to help a friend with cancer.
And pass this post on to the women you love. Now.
