Inflammatory Breast Cancer
An article in our next issue will help women and providers learn more about the symptoms, treatment and impact of inflammatory breast cancer. We seek 2-3 women who have or had IBC to share their stories. We hope to find women of diverse ages, experiences and backgrounds.

Please put “Profile” in your subject line.
We are also seeking women living with metastatic breast cancer to share their stories in their own words. In a special section of the next issue, we’ll give you 750 words to write about anything you want! If you like, our editor will help you narrow down your idea. Your story is due on Friday, Jan. 21.

If you lifted weights to build strength in your arms and chest before surgery in addition to engaging in physical rehabilitation after surgery, we also want to hear your views. Did you recover quickly, and were you helped by working out prior to surgery? What practical things did you do before and after surgery to promote healing and recovery?
