I am so honored to interview Carolyn Rodenburg this Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 5:00 pm Eastern on THE LAWS OF EPIC BEAUTY! I will be streaming live to my pages and The Laws of Life Webcast Network every Thursday at 5:00 pm Eastern!

Carolyn is the Founder of The IIIBs Foundation - Bosom Buddy Baskets , an organization dedicated to ensuring that no woman EVER faces breast cancer alone. A survivor of breast cancer herself, Carolyn has made it her mission to ensure women that have just undergone breast cancer surgery are surprised and filled with comfort and recovery items they need. The Baskets are made specifically for Pre-Operation Mastectomy Patients awaiting breast cancer mastectomy surgery and are most useful during the five days post operation in the immediate recovery process. This is going to be a deeply inspiring and educational conversation so join us and engage in the conversation as she shares her law of epic beauty!

“It takes a village” We always say it but it was really put to action with the Uncanny Nerd Fundraiser. They did the most amazing job with their 24 hour stream with guest appearances, drawings and live auction but there are others behind the scenes who really helped deliver. A special thanks to the
- UPS Store 4152 in the Ashburn Shopping Center who not only donated, but also provided some printing services
- Loudoun Pride who donated money and printed artwork for every basket, and
- The The Ashburn Pub /Purcellville Pub who donated money and assisted with coordination

Thank you to this awesome village!!

Our Story

Our Founder (Carolyn) Story: Carolyn Cole-Rodenburg, a 17-year breast cancer survivor, is the Founder & President of The IIIB's Foundation, a highly recognized and respected breast cancer charity. She is an exemplary model of someone who has personal knowledge of the physical and emotional effects of breast cancer. Carolyn is determined to fully live her life dedicated to comforting and educating other survivors, their family and friends. She is a dynamic professional who easily communicates with all intellectual levels and shares her knowledge and compassion openly in an attempt to better educate about important issues faced by women following a breast cancer diagnosis. Carolyn's passion is to help women! One month following her wedding of April 12, 2002, at the age of 42, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. She survived the life threatening disease as a result of her 1st mammogram she had due to the encouragement of friends. Her diagnosis and survival ignited a passion in her to devote her life to educate women about early detection and to provide resources and comforting items needed during the breast cancer process. She found that there were many people raising money for large corporations to help find the cure, but she felt the lack of support, emotional healing and comfort for those women who may not have time to wait for a cure. Fourteen years ago, Carolyn turned her personal tragedy into a triumph. In 2004, she was inspired by a dream to create The IIIB's Foundation. She left her lucrative corporate position in order to provide women with resources to help them through their breast cancer journey and to let them know they are not alone. Carolyn has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Radford University with many years in successful corporate positions and through her leadership, The IIIB's Foundation has received numerous accommodations and is considered a voice of comfort and hope in the breast cancer community. Carolyn's personal experience and connection to her community allows her to provide advice, helpful information and education awareness of breast cancer. Carolyn's life is dedicated to promoting recovery after breast cancer surgery. She receives correspondence every day from women thanking her for her product creativity and usefulness, personal insight, providing dignity and hope; and addressing their immediate recovery needs. Many women express gratitude that they did not feel alone during this difficult time and many just thank her for her passion to their 'cause.' Carolyn has been married to her husband, Mark, for more than 16 years. They have one daughter; Stacy, one son; Steven, one son-in-law; Scott, two grandsons; Chase and Brixton and four Husky Dogs; Sierra, Sapphire, Savanna and Sasha.

I received my basket 3 weeks ago and what a wonderful gift. There are so many great things in the basket and I am sure everyone has their favorite item- mine is the sooooo soft pink blanket I use it everyday and was such a help during the first 3 days after surgery. I still use it and will continue to use it- love to feel it as I go to sleep you have no idea how awesome you guys are. Thank you thank you. I am on a journey and good to know that there is so much wonderful support.
Meet Our Founder - Carolyn Rodenburg Carolyn was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, only one month after her wedding day. She went to her 1st mammogram because her friends encouraged her to go and immediately discovered Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS). Due to the cancer being attached to her chest wall, if she hadn’t caught it when she did, she might not be here with us today. After surgeries and recovery, with two young children and a new husband, Carolyn began to reflect on her experience and started to think about everyone else that suffers from breast cancer. She survived, she made it but what about everyone else? What could she do to help them and their breast cancer battle? One day, Carolyn was visiting her mothers grave and noticed the resting place of her high school friend, Mary Beth. She didn’t know she had passed but thought it might have to do with breast cancer. Sure enough, it did. Her thoughts on Mary Beth lead her to have a dream about a cake with pink candles on it. The next day, as Carolyn was talking to her friends, they came up with an idea. Every year, you have to add a pink candle on your friends birthday cake in order to remind them to get an annual mammogram. They thought, if women could get checked sooner and more often, this could help save lives. Little did they know, this idea would create an entire non-profit organization that provides comfort and recovery baskets to help women through their breast cancer journey. In 2004, the IIIB’s Foundation was established. The III signifies the candles in Carolyn’s vision, it is pronounced the three b’s and it stands for the “Bosom Buddy Baskets” that are delivered to breast cancer patients in their time of need. So today, we want to thank Carolyn Rodenburg, our founder and our survivor for all that she has accomplished. Thank you for fighting your fight so you could help others fight their fight everyday. We love you!
Breast Cancer recognizes no holidays, special occasions or that Breast Cancer Month is coming to an end! But The IIIB's Foundation had such an amazing October Breast Cancer month! Thank you to everyone who helps us to continue our mission of comforting and encouraging women! We were so honored to have been selected to appear in this very special Think Pink Documentary celebrating 20 years of the Think Pink movement! Enjoy the show and remember to thank all those dedicated to volunteering and making a difference!!!!! #theiiibsfoudation #bosombuddybasksts #washingtonredskins
Thank you for the amazing gift basket. It arrived just before my surgery. I have used so many items from it. Thank you again!
I received this gorgeous gift basket just a week before my Bilateral mastectomy! I just wanted to thank you so much for everything. There is so much I have needed and used from this in just my 1 week post op. Thank you 😊 from the bottom of my 💜!
Thank you so much for my beautiful basket!! I love everything in it!
Brentsville Volleyball Team supports you!
Out of curiosity, is there a basket that you can offer to a male Breast Cancer Patient? I know of one that could use the same love and support that helped get me through.
