Breast Cancer Awareness Month: SheAttack is Going Pink!

10 5054
In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, SheAttack will be going PINK!

 

Beginning October 1st, 2013, our website layout will change colors. We will also be hosting a Twitch.tv event on October 18th and 19th  to raise money that will aide in breast cancer research, education, screening, treatment, etc. SheAttack will be donating 70% of the proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation on behalf of the website. If you would like to contribute to the breast cancer awareness fund on behalf of SheAttack, click here to pledge.

Breast Cancer Facts:

Breast cancer occurs when cells in the breast divide and grow without their normal control. Tumors in the breast tend to grow slowly. By the time a lump is large enough to feel, it may have been growing for as long as 10 years. Some tumors, however, are aggressive and grow much faster.

Invasive breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells from inside the ducts or lobules break out into nearby breast tissue. Cancer cells can travel from the breast to other parts of the body through the blood stream or the lymphatic system. They may travel early in the process when the tumor is small or later when the tumor is large.

  • Both women AND men can get breast cancer.
  • In women, there are 120.9 new cases of breast cancer incidents for every 100,000 women. 21.9 of those incidents lead to mortality.
  • In men, there are 1.3 new cases of breast cancer incidents for every 100,000 men. 0.3 of those incidents lead to mortality.

The data above is from 2010, the most recent statistics available.

SheAttack.com is a female-run website that features news about video games, gaming media, industry, culture, and socialization in gaming. There is a statistic that 49% (and rising) of gamers are women. Our main objective is to figure out what that 49% are playing and how we can bridge that gap between the 49% and the rest of the gaming community.
