After watching my mother now a 23-year survivor battle breast cancer, I always made sure to get my yearly mammogram. Yet, nothing could prepare me to hear the words “You have breast cancer” in April 2006. As a single mother of two I knew I faced one of the biggest challenges of my  life.

After noticing a rash on my breast in March 1999, I went to the doctor for my yearly mammogram. As a devoted wife and mother of seven, I was totally shocked when I was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer an uncommon type of invasive breast cancer that accounts for only 1 to 3 percent of all breast cancer cases.
