THE STORY:

Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with the most deadly type of breast disease - inflammatory breast cancer. Prior to modern chemo regimens, only 2% of IBC patients survived five years. Twelve years ago, a week before my surgery, my health insurance company announced they would not pay anything for my mastectomy. Three months later, I was able to have this entirely reversed and I remain disease free. Yet I am so sorry to share... that I have known and loved many young women with families and young children that have been devastated by this disease.

Currently, with research and new treatments, survival has grown to over 40%. IBC is very difficult to diagnose and often goes undetected by mammograms. IBC has a higher incidence among younger and African Americans patients.

My dear friend Jose "Ollie" Oliveras is dedicating his next event, the Prospect Park International Distance Run in Brooklyn, New York (http://www.trifind.com/re_33194/ProspectParkFallDuathlon.html) to raising funds for the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation. IBC is working very hard to find the cause through tissue typing and cutting edge research. Please donate through this page or through IBC's website at http://www.ibcresearch.org/store/ or by the Facebook Page http://www.causes.com/profiles/120488768

Ollie is a wonderful friend I met a few years ago at Burning Man. This past summer, Olie trained for this event in the Black Rock City in the Nevada desert. Many days he ran 12+ miles in heat well over 90 degrees. Please support Ollie in making a difference. Thanks and stay blessed by The Best!!!!! Keep on shining Ollie and all of you.
