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

I am new to this site. My sister was diagnosed almost 3 weeks ago with Triple negative invasive ductal breast cancer. She had surgery to remove the tumor, but the margins were positive so she had to have another surgery. They removed 4 lymph nodes and they were a positive negative meaning that there were cancer cells present but they were so minutely present that it was considered negative. She went to the dr yesterday and the margins are negative so they are proceeding with a treatment called SAVI. Any info that you can provide will be so appreciated. She is scared to death of corse, and seeing that you have seemed to do something right maybe you can share what you have done. Thank you 😊
