Ha all

Just a few more days and 2011 is gone and 2012 arrives, a time to look back, to remember and to reflect. But also a time for a new start, fresh ideas.

First 2011, well not a very good year, in March the former version of AMMC disintegrated around me,because our landsponser got other ideas and decided to leave Second Life, but forgot to communicate that with us.

We lost 2 people behind avatars who were very dear and important,

Dr Ann Buchanan and Dr Rhi Rhiannon.

But positive things happened too, in July AMMC took part in Relay for Life.

October was pink ribbon month, with as top a 24 hour fundraiser in one of the biggest clubs in SL.

Ups almost forgot, AMMC was rebuild and AMMC is ready for 2012,but only when you from AMMC group help do that!! AMMC needs its members to stay active.

But first!!!

Happy healthy and a blessed 2012

AMMC in 2012

AMMC begins to concentrate more on preventive health care, one result is the avatar health check, another thing is speech on January 14 correction it is a workshop, it is highly recommend people showing up wear sporty clothing 🙂

AMMC continues to be open for educational institutes, that like to use AMMC,

for RL education, and education wise if you are a Medical professional and have a story/case that you really want to share by all means contact me!!!

AMMC for the rest is a chance for avatars to seek medical/mental advice,

have a breast (cancer) screening, find information on several topics, but also a domestic violence information point.

AMMC is also doing activities with partners, Dance Island a SL club is such a partner, but for a project at the end of the year, we plan to under take we need way more new partners,at this point I cant reveal too much, since we need the permission from RL (real life) organizations to do this!!

People who know me, know it is hard for me to keep my mouth shut, specially when I am excited and on this topic, I am excited.

July is Relay for Life month, this year we have a lot to Relay for we lost several staff by cancer. Relay for Life is, to celebrate survivors, remember and fight back, AMMC is linked to a group named Beeloved, this group was formed to help someone fight, now we remember her, but not only her.

I hope that AMMC together with this group will make a presence on SL

AMMC will organize some events running up to Relay for Life and I very much seek volunteers who like to organize this!!

Well this was, my story for now, I conclude with happy new year and see you in 2012!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wonderful that AMMC is alive and well. Thank you for sustaining through Ann’s spirit and continuing to support those who care for the patient as a person.

      Ha Pamela

      Thank you for your words, i sort of adopted AMMC from Dr Ann,
      she teached me (with some others) some valuable lessons not only for my career but also for me as person and hope to keep AMMC open in Second Life.
      Did visit the website and i like the concept of treating a person as integral being, instead of a disease or a condition with a person attached to it.
      Hope to stay in touch and meet you in (virtual) person

      (as extra info AMMC is a hospital in a virtual world called Second Life)
