Each action (post, shared story, etc.) generates a "click". You can "like" and share as many stories as you want - each time you do, Breastcancer.org earns another "click". Stonyfield has pledged $0.10 per click or $100,000 if the campaign achieves 1 million "clicks".

By getting involved, you're enabling Breastcancer.org to fund more programs to promote better breast health and breast cancer education and support. In return, we hope you find and share some inspiration!

Please help us spread the word, and "post away!"

Thank you!!!

In June of 2010 at the age of 57,  I started experiencing strange things in my right arm.  After visiting with my doctor that June, he confirmed my suspicion that I had a spider bite.  I was put on a regiment of antibiotics, sent home and told to come back to the doctor in 10 days. The 10 days came and went, the swelling did not go down, I was then sent for tests for Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis. All of these tests came back negative.   These tests took from June through September, 2010.   Over the next few weeks my breast started to grow in size, it became black and blue, the pain was now excruciating. I started my research on the Internet and found the Inflammatory Breast Cancer link on the National Institute of Cancer site. As I scrolled through I found a picture of "Peau L'Orange".  I yelled for my husband to come and see this page, and I said, very sadly:  "this is what I have". I was devastated!  The very next day I called my doctor who asked me to come in and I showed him the printout and said this is what I have.   He immediately told me not to jump to any conclusions.  There are very many infections that mimic these effects. He had me walk over to a surgeon who did a biopsy of my lymph nodes and my breast.  It was Monday. All week we waited for the results to come back. Friday, September 17, 2010 @ 4:45pm the call came through.   The lymph node biopsy was positive for cancer.  It was my husband's 41st birthday.  The next day was our anniversary.  I spent the day doing as much research as I could on IBC. There wasn't much. Data indicated that 2-3% of all breast cancer is inflammatory

Well it's now 18 months of treatments, lots of chemotherapy, now radiation too. I look forward to each new day. 18 months of treatments, and 18 months of being alive!
