Lori is a wife and mother as well as a physician. Her second child was still a babe in arms when she was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, IBC.
Diagnosed only two years ago, Lori currently is a Stage IV IBC patient and is dealing with pleural effusion. Lori truly is the face of this disease and is one of the reasons The IBC Network Foundation was formed, to educate and fund research in the fight against IBC. Inflammatory Breast Cancer is viewed as rare, but is the most fatal of the breast cancers, does not have a lump and can strike women in younger years often pre-mammogram suggested age screening.
The IBC Network Foundation will issue funding April 30th at 10:30 at the Mays Clinic, in Houston Texas. All are welcome to attend.
The research is under the direction of Dr. Woodward. Dr. Woodward is an Associate Professor and the Director of Clinical Breast Radiation Research in Department of Radiation Oncology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC). She is a physician-scientist specializing in clinical breast radiation oncology with a lab focused on breast cancer stem cell biology and radiobiology.
We are grateful to the community for their support and as well as Dr. Naoto Ueno, executive director of the Morgan Welch Inflammatory Breast Cancer and all of his staff for their continued encouragement in our mission.
