About The Pink Quilt Project
The Pink Quilt Project is launching in October 2023. Quilts can be donated now through August 31st, which will then be auctioned in October 2023. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) research.
What is IBC?
Inflammatory breast cancer, also called IBC, is a rare but aggressive form of breast cancer. Inflammatory Breast Cancer makes up about 1% of all breast cancer. Knowing the symptoms of IBC can save a life.
Signs & Symptoms
- Breast swelling that appears suddenly with one breast much larger than the other.
- Itching of the breast.
- Pink, red, or dark colored area on the breast, sometimes with a dimpling of the breast skin that looks like an orange peel (called peau d’orange).
- Ridges and thickened areas of the skin on the breast.
- Breast that feels warm to the touch.
- Flattened or retracted nipple.
Breast pain or tenderness.
- Although sometimes a lump can be felt, it's less common with IBC than with other breast cancer.
Where will funds from the quilt auction be donated?
All profits from the Quilt Donation will be donated to the IBC Network, which funds research in inflammatory breast cancer at MD Anderson, Houston, TX.
