(FOX 25/MyFoxBoston.com) - Linda Bell, 57, was diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer last July.
She tells Fox 25 she went to bed one night feeling completely normal, and woke up the next morning feeling excruciating pain in her left breast.
Doctors at Tufts Medical Cancer Center say Inflammatory Breast Cancer causes your breasts to be red, swollen, and sometimes takes on the texture of an orange peel.
This rare form of Breast Cancer is described as aggressive by doctors, sometimes being in your body for only a matter of days before the onset.
Bell has undergone a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and is currently undergoing radiation.
She invited Fox 25 to her first radiation appointment.
She wants others to see the reality of the disease.
