Think Before You Pink

I promised a post on donating to cancer-related organizations, specifically those for breast cancer and breast cancer research.

Susan Komen puts only 7% of their annual budget toward breast cancer research. They spend their money on advertising for awareness campaigns. While it’s important to inform women about getting screened for breast cancer, 116 men and women with breast cancer die every day. We deserve better.So, if you want to make a difference for the 3 million women already diagnosed with breast cancer, please consider donating directly to places that are researching ways to keep us alive longer until there is a cure.
