Breast Cancer

I sent out an email late last year about Inflammatory Breast Cancer also known as IBC. I attached a video from YouTube to the email. Well, I wanted to post it here on my blog also.

Not many know but I've been seeing a breast doctor for over a year now and am being watched for breast cancer or any abnormalities due to some symptoms I've been having. I've become pretty aware of not only my body but the topic of breast cancer.

There are so many women out there that think "I'm young breast exams are for older people". I'm 29 and started having issues at the age of 28. More and more young women are victims of breast cancer. Age means nothing anymore. We should all be aware of any changes with our body.

Anyways, here's some important information I wanted to share with the women in my life.

Breast cancer is something women think they know all about: Look for lumps; have mammograms; see our doctors.

But none of that will save you from one silent breast cancer killer that women know virtually nothing about.

It's called "Inflammatory Breast Cancer," and it's something every woman must know about.

Here is the link to the YouTube video that you should watch...IBC

  1. Beth, Thank you for sharing that information. I will try to pass on that link to other women I know.

    Hope that your own situation is going alright. I will keep you in my prayers.
