Ohio Hunt for Hope 2018

Lori Gill Grennan passed away on January 21, 2013 as a result of Inflammatory Breast Cancer. We “hunt” to carry out her mission. Though Lori has moved on to a better life, her legacy lives on through her family and friends and this wonderful charity event. The Ohio Hunt for Hope has raised over $445,000 dollars in 7 years, and has raised an astonishing $78,600 last year alone. WOW! Your generosity helped to fund approximately 15 major research projects. This is not possible without Ohio’s support and our ALL VOLUNTEER organization.

How Do We Help?

We primarily fund research

We attend research meetings, serve on grant committee’s, lobby, educate and run online support groups, just to list a few ways we spend our time.

However, we want you to also see we are about funding research because we feel that is where the rubber meets the road.

The purpose of The IBC Network Foundation 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.

We hope you will join us as we put our message out to the world.

Because Research Matters

We think this simple message sums up our mission well.  Awareness is important and we know that IBC education is an area that needs improvement globally, but without research, how can we expect to see better for women and men who currently have IBC?  Research funding is key.
