Pink Ribbons Project will be represented at the upcoming 2009 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS), which is presented by the CTRC, AACR, and the Baylor College of Medicine. “The driving force behind this collaboration is the shared mission of the organizations to advance progress against breast cancer. By combining their respective strengths, the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium encompasses the full spectrum of breast cancer research and facilitates the rapid transition of new knowledge into improved care for breast cancer patients.”
One of the concentrations of the Summit is Inflammatory Breast Cancer, otherwise known as “IBC”. IBC is the most aggressive form of breast cancer and causes the breasts to appear red and inflamed. It particularly affects younger women, and is especially deadly.
We are HUGE fans of this wonderful video from Matthew Steinhart on this serious issue. To check it out, click here: The IBC Project: First Cut . It contains graphic images, so viewer discretion is advised.
