I am fortunate enough to be able to fund this trip myself so, rather than spend time and energy raising sponsorship and funding I want to use it to raise some awareness and money for a cause that is very close to my heart.

The Inflammatory Breast Cancer Network UK (IBCN)

Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a rare and highly fatal form of breast cancer that is not typically discovered by mammogram and often occurs prior to standard breast cancer screening age recommendations.

I first learned of IBC when a very close friend of mine was diagnosed in 2016 and she has written about her story for this site. Like most people this was the first time I had heard of IBC and having seen first hand the speed with which this cancer can spread I hope you will join me in supporting the IBC Network UK in their work.

IBCN's purpose is to educate the public and health professionals about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) and to promote and fund IBC research in the United Kingdom.

Donations can be made at this GoFundMe link.

Donations go directly to IBCN though GoFundMe and PayPal Giving.
