t seems that when women have IBC about 30-35% of the time it is also TNBC. It can be a very challenging combination to treat and after helping about ten women with IBC/TN over the last several years it has become a particular passion of mine. I am hoping that the efforts of the scientists present will help the women with IBC and IBC/TN. I know it is a small group, in numbers, and therefore challenging, funding-wise, but I so admire those who have dedicated their efforts to find a cure/better treatment for the IBC community.

I agree, we need to bring more attention to both IBC and TNBC, both rare and aggressive... we need more awareness and funding... and a cure.

Hi Sara,

We have many ladies 7 plus years.. I think about 13-14 or more years on this particular forum.  I'm well on my way to the 7 year mark.  A tiny bit of residual neuropathy, a toe nail problem.. I'd say that's minor in the big scheme of things. LOL

I feel extremely BLESSED to be surrounded by loving family, a grown son and daughter I couldn't be more proud of.  2 college student daughters (actually I really did marry young and my daughter started having babies young) with a total of 5 grands in our blended blessed family.  I love them all like there's no tomorrow!


Dx July 2011 56 yo
Stage I IDC,TN,Grade 3
Grew to Stage IIa- No ev of node involve- BRCA1+ chondroid metaplasia
Daughter also BRCA1+
Mass grew on Taxol
FEC 6x better
BMX 3/19/12 pCR NED
BSO 6/2012
