Join us for an old fashioned scavenger hunt, have fun and raise funding for cancer research!
What is Hunt for Hope?
Hunt for Hope is an old fashioned scavenger hunt! Hunters will be given a list of items, some to find, some to snap a photo. All funding raised from Hunt for Hope will underwrite IBC research.

What is IBC?
Inflammatory breast cancer is a rare but most fatal form of breast cancer. While it accounts for 2-6% of all breast cancers, the 5-year overall survival rate is 40%, as compared to near 90% for all types of breast cancer combined. Since IBC, inflammatory breast cancer, can not be detected until a stage III, so we need more research for this more aggressive breast cancer.
I lost a dear friend to this disease. She was only 32 at her diagnosis. Her wish was for more research so no one else would be lost to this brutal form of cancer. It is not as rare as most think! My assistant also lost her mom to this. Because of this we will be honoring these two lovely women and any other that you would like to add. Let us know!
The IBC Network has funded two major IBC research projects in the last year with the Hunts, totaling over $100,000. ♥ Your $$$ will directly support IBC research. Please share, please plan t
