Terry Arnold was diagnosed with IBC in her right breast in August of 2007 after months of misdiagnoses. As if an IBC triple negative diagnosis was not enough of a blow, she discovered her left breast had traditional cancer as well. In treatment for almost a year, six months of chemo, double mastectomy, and daily radiation for six weeks.
Outside of being the best wife possible to her husband, Calvin of 32 years, and mother of five, mother in law of three, and grandmother of four, with one more arriving in the Fall 2013. She is focused on educating every person to learn more about IBC, its symptoms, best treatment plans, and funding research.
She founded The IBC Network Foundation, a 501c3 in August 2011, she has her sights set on funding research as fast as the donations will allow.
She looks forward to the day we can all remember that once, long ago, there was a disease called IBC that is now filed under an archive of past diseases because we have a cure.
Hope always, Terry
