Breast cancer is prevalent, in more forms than one, the most dangerous of which is Inflammatory Breast Cancer, of which in this group we have one survivor, however the task is to spread the word on all forms of cancer – and make people aware that they should check and be aware that it can rear its ugly head at any time.

For the Hope Ring, for Relay for Life (RFL).
Brywnwynn, you are Beloved, you are our Bee and you are Loved.
Cancer is one disease that continues to escape man’s control. Some forms in particular can become deadly in a very short time. Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is one of them, with symptoms that are different than other breast cancers, often escaping detection through mammograms, self-exam, or traditional medical detection tools, until already well underway.
Learn about IBC and help us spread the word.
