One more week to go! And I've exceeded my goal this year! THANK YOU! Without you we can't fund research for the deadliest breast cancer - IBC- inflammatory breast cancer
May 06, 2017

Kara O'Shea

THE STORY:

By mother's day, May 14th 2017 I'm asking you to make a simple donation to The IBC Network Foundation.  It's a contribution that will go to RESEARCH.  If you have Inflammatory Breast Cancer or know someone fighting it then you understand that new studies in trying to fight this disease are fundamental to saving so many lives.  Doctors, nurses and all of us need to learn that a simple little rash might NOT be an infection, it might be the deadliest form of breast cancer and your mammogram showed NO changes or concerns....It happens and happens too often.

Kara O'Shea's mother, Janice Kipp, was diagnosed with IBC in early 2014 and tragically passed away in July 2014. A vibrant wife, mother and wonderful chef left this world too soon from one of the deadliest forms of breast cancer. Kara promised her Mom she would keep fighting and now she is asking you to help her reach her goal for more funding towards research. We appreciate any and all donations which will go to the IBC Network Foundation.

Early 2014 would change my family forever..3 letters known as IBC spoken by an Oncologist caused such fear, tears, anxiety, stress and fright. A woman in her 60's, a mother, a wife, a sister, a friend, a chef and overall giving person is diagnosed with a horrific disease with little research. No lump is present and a breast cancer not visible on a mammogram. A small rash on my Mom's breast will turn into one of the deadliest forms of cancer called Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Just a few weeks after noticing the rash, her cancer will be stage IV and the incurable fight will begin. and she will fight hard.....

Inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) is a very aggressive type of locally advanced breast cancer with a poor prognosis. Patients present with rapid onset of erythema and edema of the breast skin (i.e., peau d'orange). In the U.S., IBC is a very "rare" disease, with a frequency in the range of 1%–5%.

It's NOT "rare", it's REAL.

Thank you for your support.
