Past Board Members
Kiwana Thomas Gayden
The world is a little dimmer today. It is great regret that we share the news of the passing of Kiwana Thomas Gayden. She passed in the early morning hours of July 12, 2018 with her husband Lorenzo at her side.
In January 2016, she was diagnosed with stage IIIB triple negative inflammatory breast cancer. She underwent six months of chemotherapy, a double mastectomy and 6.5 weeks of radiation. Having completed treatment in October 2016, she was considered NED (no evidence of disease) at that time. Kiwana became passionate about IBC awareness and education after her diagnosis and was a dynamic and much loved board member for The IBC Network Foundation.
