Friendswood resident, Terry Arnold, leads the effort to score a win in the PUMA Project Pink! for MD Anderson's Morgan Welch Clinic. This clinic was the first of its kind, opened in 2006, just one year prior to Ms. Arnold being diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer, (IBC) a rare but fatal form of breast cancer. Since her diagnoses, she has worked tirelessly for education on IBC. The efforts even included involving the State of Texas who honored her request to recognize IBC as a serious form of breast cancer and declared the month of October 2011 Inflammatory Breast Cancer month.
