Breast Cancer Early Detection and Diagnosis

Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular breast cancer screening is so important. Learn more about the various methods of detection:

 EARLY DETECTION 

Ways to Help Wednesday

Cancer affects both you and your loved ones. Our information for caregivers at cancer.org/caregivers helps them care for you while also remembering
their own needs and shows them how to ask for help
and support. They can also visit csn.cancer.org for caregiver forums.  In-world, caregivers are encouraged to join ACS Caregivers Network.

Have you ever wonder who exactly is a caregiver?  By knowing who a caregiver is and what they do, you will be able to think of ways to help them in their role.  Many family members may not even realize they are caregivers.  Check out the role of a caregiver, not only close by but long distance and their roles at What is a cancer caregiver on cancer.org.

If you are not a caregiver but know of one, share this information.  Volunteer to help the caregiver.  You offering to do small routine things can help a caregiver in huge ways.  For example, Volunteer to come in a couple days a week and help with the household chores.  Consider making dinner for the caregiver’s family one night.  Ask if there is anything you can pick up for them when you make your grocery run.   For long distant caregivers, be a listening ear or a fun break.  You can help just by letting them know you are there.

The American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Across Second Life is pleased to present an ultimate luxury home for auction, with all of the proceeds going toward raising funds for breast cancer research.

“We are thrilled that a top designer has chosen to come alongside MSABC to help us make a difference with this unique opportunity,” says Leala Spire, Strides co-lead. “The quality of the build is exquisite. One lucky homeowner will have an ultimate luxury retreat that includes everything, even down to potholders in the kitchen.”

AXL Pro Design has donated their Technozen Acqua House Furnished Easy, priced at L$79,999, for the auction. Creator Slash Hansome has put everything you could possibly think of when it comes to luxe living in this house and club, and Spire encourages shoppers to explore the house, which will be on display starting on Oct 1.

With a footprint of 128 meters by 128 meters and 4,899 prim, the one-of-a-kind modernist home boasts 93 adult menus, which means there are thousands of possible adult animations.

This new Japanese-inspired house has 4 bedrooms, a bar and lounge, private cinema, jacuzzi room, sauna, gym, three lounges, a kitchen, dining room, office, billiard lounge, a garage, two living rooms, balconies, an elevator and a piano lounge — all with adult animations. This house has it all, even down to a security camera system, dishes in the cupboard and fully stocked refrigerators and bars! And, for the bold of spirit, there are even two secret rooms waiting to be found.

The outside is completely landscaped and features an adult swimming pool, dock, gardens, patio, parking, a club and helipad. You can even take a walk along its cliff side and discover a natural trail and scenic overlook. For a sneak preview, check out the photo gallery of the house on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/gp/160579805@N03/vsX30s

You can tour this house starting Oct. 1 through Oct 26. on the Parade of Homes Tour.  Tour HUDs will be available at the Strides office, located on American Cancer Society Island starting Oct. 1: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/American%20Cancer%20Society/192/197/23
