Proceeds will benefit the Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center’s Inflammatory Breast Cancer Program
The James Cancer Hospital’s Stefanie Spielman Comprehensive Breast Center is launching an inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) program. The IBC program will be the first in the state of Ohio and one of only a handful in the nation. Proceeds from our fundraiser will support the program by assisting in underwriting some of the infrastructure costs for the program. The specialized IBC program has been a long term goal, first considered by my sister, Dr. Lori Gill Grennan, a young doctor from Ohio, stricken by the disease. For years and in honor of Lori, our family has partnered with the IBC Network Foundation to support IBC research at MD Anderson, Dana Farber, and Vanderbilt. Now after years of preparations, our time has come to be able to underwrite an IBC program here in Ohio. We are thrilled to be taking an extraordinary first step to offer world class care for this aggressive disease to women in and around our community. Please join us in supporting this milestone! Your support, by forming a team, being a donor and/or asking friends to donate, will assist in making a strike against the most fatal form of breast cancer, inflammatory breast cancer. Because of your generosity, the women of Ohio, and even surrounding states, will have better odds to beat this disease.
In memory of Dr. Lori Gill Grennan,
When: Friday, July 30, 2021
Where: Gahanna Lanes, 215 W. Johnstown Road, Gahanna, Ohio 43230
Starting a team is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference.

A working definition: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a rare and very aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast.
This type of breast cancer is called “inflammatory” because the breast often looks swollen and red, or “inflamed.”
