Let's get serious about our real lives here....
We all know that without a real life, there is no secondlife. If we die in real life, our avatars die too.
According to http://www.breastcancer.org/
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (just under 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime
In 2011, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 57,650 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
About 39,520 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2011 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1990 — especially in women under 50. These decreases are thought to be the result of treatment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.
For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
White women are slightly more likely to develop breast cancer than African-American women. However, in women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, African-American women are more llkely to die of breast cancer. Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women have a lower risk of developing and dying from breast cancer.
We all know that Breast cancer sees no gender, sees no color, sees no sexual orientation, sees no age. So we have to band together and fight for a cure!
This can start right on your comfy couch! or on your bed! on your floor! or if so inclinded, the kitchen table!
