About Lindsay Thul
Lindsay and her mother Diane
Lindsay Marie Thul died at the young age of 29 on February 1, 2017, less than 10 months following her official IBC diagnosis. There is no family history of any type of cancer and Lindsay was a healthy, active 28 year old young professional in the prime of her life. Additionally, her diagnosis was triple negative and was resistant to all of the traditional therapies used. WE WANT ANSWERS and feel this can be accomplished by funding research into cause and treatment of triple negative Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
