Blaze IBC Research Pin
Pin #2 was designed by Blaze (aka Karen Blasdell, Ph.D. in Psychoneuroimmunology at UCLA in Los Angeles) in 1999. Blaze chose pink for the ribbon, and included the words “IBC RESEARCH” to bring additional attention to the pin, and the opportunity for the wearer to tell others about inflammatory breast cancer. Blaze was tireless in her efforts at breast cancer research, especially in translation of research into clinical settings. Blaze died in May, 2001.
Pin #1 was designed by Dr. Sanford Barsky in 1999, while a pathologist and cancer researcher at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Dr. Barsky successfully implanted inflammatory breast cancer into a mouse. Using this xenograft of human inflammatory breast cancer, his research continues.
Dr. Barsky’s pin uses the pink breast crossed ribbon as its basis, but depicts a cross section of an endothelial-cell-formed lymphovascular space, with six epithelial cells forming a tumor embolus in that space. The formation of tumor emboli of as many as hundreds of epithelial tumor cells is characteristic of inflammatory breast cancer.
