Wii Helps Woman Through Breast Cancer

Buried at the bottom of a couple mainstream articles about the Wii is a slightly different take on the whole "fitness" phenomenon. Mary Jane Zamora is a 50 year old woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2005. After a round of chemotherapy she found herself weakened, too tired to get off the couch.

Do you even understand the concept of racism?

He's not being racist, he is just saying that the Wii PR is getting more and more ridiculous. And he's right, if the Wii is that great than maybe they should drop a load of them in Iraq to resurrect all the innocent people who died there.

and keeps the cancer in remission for the short term, but Folding @home could possibly rid of the cancer forever; for her and the rest of the world. Good read.

ChickeyCantor3713d ago

Omg, you compare 2 different aspects man......0_o

@Odiah
i was kidding, i know what racism is (i was looking @ his picture when i said that)=)
But still it was uncalled for !

So you're advocating that ppl install [email protected] on their PC, right? It'd be somewhat of a shame to give a shameless PS3 plug in this context just because the Wii is showing benefits outside of the world of gaming but it doesn't appeal to you like the PS3 does.

@Babylonian
I knowwwwwwwwwwwww.
it was his " achmed" comment which was uncalled for.

" Wii is that great than maybe they should drop a load of them in Iraq to resurrect all the innocent people who died there. "
*sigh*

That's one of few names that people there are named by. Just like the names Ali, Rachid, Hasan, Mazin, Amar, Hamdi, Osama etc.

It was a generalization for comedic effect, not racism. Jeez, I was just trying to make a joke.

It's no different from saying 'little billy,' or 'little tyrone,' or whatever, I was just trying to be region-specific and current.
