Seasons of Pink ~ Part I ~ Volunteer for Breast Cancer


The lush greens of THE DREAMING FOREST with beautiful sculptures are eye catching. The peaceful environment amidst the presence of nature is soul satisfying. While I visited the forest, I was greeted with a warm welcome by the owners of the land.

The Dream Forest is looking for Second Life artists and photographers to display their creativity. An artist can display their work for a month without any monthly tier. It is a great opportunity for upcoming artist to showcase their talent to the public.

While enjoying the beautiful scenario and warmth of the sun, I received a message from the Relay for Life Volunteers Group. I thought to share with you all. The Relay for Life Fundraising Event has started from September 1st, 2014 to October 31st, 2014. This event will be concentrating on making strides against Breast Cancer. The theme chosen for the year 2014 is “Seasons of Pink“.

If you would like to get involved in the fundraising for a justified cause, you may contact Jessii2009 Warrhol or Gem Sunkiller (the chairs of the event) or you may look into their official page.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer. Although most cases with breast cancer are diagnosed in women, men can have it too. The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is about 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 36. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment.

According to the American Cancer Society, breast cancer is about 100 times less common among men than among women. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000. The number of breast cancer cases in men relative to the population has been fairly stable over the last 30 years.

What is Making Strides Against Breast Cancer?

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer or MSABC is the largest network of breast cancer awareness events in the United States, uniting more than 300 communities to finish the fight. Every breast cancer walk and event is an incredible and inspiring opportunity to honor those who have battled through breast cancer. They raise awareness to reduce breast cancer risk, and help American Cancer Society fight the disease with research, information, services, and access to mammograms for women who need them.

This time, I am starting the series with “Seasons of Pink” which will be updating you with events by MSABC till October 31st, 2014.
