Our Founder (Carolyn) Story: Carolyn Cole-Rodenburg, a 11-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 encourgement 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. Eight 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 recognitions 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 10 years. They have one daughter; Stacy, one son; Steven and four Husky Dogs; Shadow, Sierra, Sapphire and Savanna.

Mission: The IIIB’s Foundation helps to comfort women through the pain associated with breast cancer surgery and treatment. We are celebrating our 10th Anniversary of providing Thousands of Bosom Buddy Baskets as gifts to breast cancer survivors to ensure that no woman faces breast cancer alone.

Our Bosom Buddy, Karin Hiddleston Lindberg was honored with The Champion Award presented by the Jefferson Awards Foundation for her services and contributions to The IIIB's Foundation. Jefferson Awards were established in 1972 by Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Senator Robert Taft, Jr and Sam Beard to celebrate greatness in service. Since then over 61,000 Grassroots unsung heroes have been recognized with Jefferson Awards - and each of their stories has inspired others to serve. Through celebration, we multiply good.

So proud to work with Christine Tracy Stone delivering our Bosom Buddy Baskets to breast cancer patients in Inova Loudoun Hospital! She always goes above and beyond and is very deserving of this award!

In honor of World Cancer Day (yesterday), we congratulate our amazing oncology nurse navigator Christine Tracy Stone for being selected as a finalist for the prestigious 2018 ONS Frontline Care Award.

Christine is the epitome of compassion, determination, focus and selflessness. Her kindness comes through in every interaction with our patients and their families. She truly makes a difference, always going above and beyond for our patients and their loved ones.

This award was created to recognize a frontline oncology nurse who demonstrates exceptional patient care through the use of evidence-based practice.

Thank you Christine for meeting the unique needs of every patient you serve.
