Terry Arnold was diagnosed with Triple Negative Inflammatory Breast Cancer, (TN IBC) in her right breast in August of 2007 after months of misdiagnosis. Also discovered her left breast had TN breast cancer as well. She realized this “orphaned form of breast cancer” was in dire need of research and educational funding. She formed the IBC Network Foundation in August of 2011, a 503c1 charity that she runs full time as a volunteer, to encourage education and fund research. The charity’s impact is now global as there is a sister charity in the UK as well. A milestone for education was realized with the development of an app available for a free download and is recommended by IBC specialists.
Terry is truly a hero to the women diagnosed w/ IBC, a rare aggressive breast cancer. Through her grassroots foundation's work in funding much needed research, and individual HC-related advocacy (including running IBC-focused FB groups) she is able to impact 1000s of lives. She's knowledgeable, highly passionate and always hopeful. — Angela
