Good to read about your journey. I had a similar wakeup call when I was diagnosed with breast cancer just before 9/11 happpened. My brother and sister also got cancer in 2001.

Hi Joanne, thanks for sharing your journey and congratulations on still being here :) I too had IBC, stage 3b, and I know what a miracle it is to survive IBC. Facing death and taking the cancer journey (hello—I developed hypothyroidism too!) does make you take inventory of your life and remind you to live it the best way you can! Muah! 💋
