A Forward to pay attention to...IBC

Most e-mails that are forwarded to me end up in the trash. I don't even open them - just hit the big X and move on. This one that was sent to me last week caught my attention and I have not been able to shake it.

The subject line said FW: IBC

This was the message:

Hey All,
I have never heard of this. It is important. Please pass this on to raise awareness about this silent killer.

Kelly is a friend of mine and she cared enough about me to send a warning about Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I had never heard of it, nor did three of my friends at work. The clip below warns that cases have been misdiagnosed since they may first appear to be a simple insect bite. It is a fast growing cancer and early diagnosis is extremely important. Often, a tumor cannot be felt, and may not be seen on a mammogram. The diagnosis is based on the results of the biopsy and the doctor's clinical judgment.

If you have not heard about Inflammatory Breast Cancer, please take a minute to watch this clip:

As they say in the Forwards...THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT TO DELETE...please read this!

The sharing of this kind of health information is a very good idea. The network that runs out through this electronic media is very wide spread. Good exchange of healthy text.
