Your eyes are not deceiving you, Linuxchic.net is running yet another new theme. This one is special and different from all the other mood changes; this month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Linuxchic.net is going Pink for October.
“About 178,480 women in the United States will be found to have invasive breast cancer in 2007. About 40,460 women will die from the disease this year. Right now there are about two and a half million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
“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 35. Breast cancer death rates are going down.”
-excerpt from the American Cancer Society
