What is IBC?
A working definition
Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a rare and very aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast.
This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed.”
Our mission is simple:
- 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.
“I would not have been diagnosed as quickly as I was if I hadn’t had the information and resources that The IBC Network provides us on their website and their app.”
“The IBC Network Foundation made a huge difference for me. They helped me find the right treatment after the initial hospital did not want to do radiation and surgery since I was stage 4 already. I had surgery and radiation, finished in July 2019, and have been NED since.”
“Education from The IBC Network Foundation, I think was truly part of me becoming, finally, NED through treatment.”
