Board of Directors
Ginny, a Registered Nurse, was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer in 1994. Since then she has been a tireless educator and advocate for inflammatory breast cancer. In addition, she squeezes in time with her grandchildren whenever possible.
Carol was diagnosed with stage IIIB triple negative inflammatory breast cancer in August 2003. Although she whines about her thin, chemo curly hair, Carol is doing well.
Since her diagnosis with hormone-receptor negative, HER2 positive inflammatory breast cancer in 1998, Phyllis has been active in various on-line IBC support groups. A retired teacher, she enjoys time with her grandchildren, traveling, and volunteering with the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Jennifer’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. She joined the board as Treasurer in 2015. Jennifer enjoys spending time with her children, niece and nephew.
Bryon’s aunt Kathy Milburn-Williams was diagnosed with triple negative inflammatory breast cancer in 2006. It didn’t take long for the family to conclude that more IBC research was needed. Bryon has worked since 2007 to fund and build collaborations that support IBC research through the Milburn Foundation.
Jennifer was diagnosed with stage IV Inflammatory Breast Cancer in November 2015. Today, rather than focusing her energy on her own fight, she has redirected her energies, toward advocating and IBC education. Also, she runs a support group at Baylor Hospital in Dallas, TX.
