Press Release Summary = Foundation Established to Raise Consciousness About
Inflammatory Breast Cancer

Press Release Body = San Jose, CA - April 4, 2007 - In honor of his late wife, Steve
Gorman has established The Elaine Anestos Gorman Foundation to raise consciousness
about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC), a very aggressive and little known form of
breast cancer that is on the rise.

Gorman, founder of Alternative Health Insurance Services, believes that simply
making more people aware of IBC will save lives. The Foundation has established a
website at to provide the public with information about IBC.

"Right now, the site contains some very basic information that every woman should
know" says Gorman. "We will be adding more content to the website as the Foundation

IBC is an advanced and accelerated form of breast cancer usually not detected by
mammograms or ultrasounds.
Some women who have inflammatory breast cancer may remain undiagnosed for long
periods, even while seeing their doctor to learn the cause of their symptoms. The
symptoms are similar to mastitis, a breast infection and some doctors, not
recognizing IBC, will prescribe antibiotics. If a response to antibiotics is not
apparent after a week, a biopsy should be performed or a referral to a breast
specialist is warranted.
Gorman's wife, Elaine, passed away in August 2006 after battling IBC for close to
three years. "Elaine would be proud of the work we are doing in her name and I know
she would be pleased that people will be helped by the Foundation" said Gorman.

The Foundation is a tax exempt organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the
Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the Foundation are deductible under section
170 of the code.
