Following a diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound and biopsy, on July 18, at only 31 years old, I was diagnosed with stage III inflammatory breast cancer (IBC).
As I was getting ready for bed one night, I noticed an area of hardness in my right breast as my arm brushed my right side. It wasn’t a lump, but a solid area, and it immediately caught my attention.
At age 44, I was healthy and feeling great. I had just been to see my OBGYN for an annual exam in 2015 and he told me everything looked good. He brushed off a pink’ish patch on my left breast and told me that I might need larger bras.

At the age of 36, I was diagnosed with stage IV inflammatory breast cancer. I was also pregnant with our second daughter.
