Hey all, I am starting this thread to give us a place to meet up and check in. We all know this "ain't Facebook" and since some of us have left the boards recently let's have a roll call and start fresh here. Some of the "IBC ladies" and other threads have gone a bit untended so let's see who we are:

I'll go first: dx June 2015 TN IBC, not NED but hoping to get there.

IBC is such a different diagnosis than so many of the other types of BC I think it is really important for us to talk and share and learn from each other.

I am taking a "board break" mid June 2016, I will be back but mentally exhausted right now. Peace be with all of you. Diagnosed at 46 triple negative IBC. Mets to skin, lungs, bones.

Good day to all my friends! As promised, this is a picture of our little camper we had restored this spring. We love it! It had been in my husband's family for years, and had fallen into disrepair...it was just about gone from all hope! But a friend took on the challenge and now it is back in action. We hope to use it for many years. It is a 1968 Serro Scotty. I will post some pics of the inside.

On another note, I too am thinking of Purple, and miss her. Thank you all for continuing this board in it's reinvented form, we are a true family of support.

What a beautiful caravan Meadow! The interior is splendid. Reminds me of the caravan we had when I was a child, but ours was not that beautiful though.

Traveltext, very good article on male bc

Only 2 days left to work before holidays. Looking forward to spend them with my children, who are studying in the Netherlands, so I don't see them as often as I would like.

As my kids would say OMG Meadow! The camper van is amazing. I was born in '68 so it's pushing fifty like me. You have done a great job on the interior. I love it. Wishing you many happy years of rambling and exploring.

TT, thanks for the link to the articles. You write so well. I think you should write a book.... Bet I am not the first person to say that to you.

On the health front had routine echo cardiogram yesterday, all fine. So next Kadcyla on Tuesday.

Best wishes to all. Enjoy your holidays and short breaks,
