What is IBC?
Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a rare and very aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast.
This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed.”
It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our founder Julie Fishlock this morning. Julie worked tirelessly to set up the foundation and made fantastic progress raising funds and awareness for IBC in Australia. Julie will be remembered fondly as a strong and driven woman. We will continue to build on the work she did in her honour.
Our condolences are with all of her family and friends particularly her daughter Keeley.
