"Stay off the internet" they said. Rarely diagnosed, published statistics about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) survival have been slow to catch up with treatment advances. Simply put, the numbers--and stories--are grim. I was 34 years old when I was diagnosed with Stage 4 IBC, a mom to three kids under three. Average survival rate of 33 months? Unacceptable. After completing chemotherapy, a radical modified bilateral mastectomy, and twice daily radiation, I started writing. Our blog, Pink Door House, is a Safe Place for women with IBC. Those newly diagnosed, in ongoing targeted therapy (like me), survivors, thrivers. A place that's raw and real, offering a bit of humor and always hope.
