I was 41 when diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. I noticed skin changes on my left breast and went to my doctor, who sent me for a mammogram with ultrasound. They did a biopsy that day and it was confirmed breast cancer. Everything went so quickly after that. I was set up with an oncologist then underwent 8 rounds of chemo and then a double mastectomy, followed by 8 rounds of radiation. Thanks to The Pink Fund I can concentrate on treatment, healing and my family. This funding will help my family tremendously. Thank you again.
