It's the time of the year the NFL fakes like they care about breast cancer....

Can you imagine if one of these foundations actually found a cure?
So where does all the money being raised actually go? There are many nonprofits that have joined the pink war against the disease, but the most prominent group behind the pink tide is the non-profit foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure (Komen). In 2011, Komen reported a net of $439 million in public support, but the foundation spent most of that on education, screening and treatment – and more on fundraising and administrative costs than it did on research. (In 2009 and 2010, executives earned between $400,000 and $500,000 in annual salary.) Despite the fact that it defines its mission as finding a cure for breast cancer, the organization spent $75 million on research in 2011, which is just 17 percent of its revenue, on finding a cure......
One of Wisconsin's premier breast cancer researchers, Dr. Judy Tjoe, credits the pink movement with raising awareness and gradually reducing deaths due to screenings, but she said too little money lands in the hands of scientists.
Women are eleven times more likely to die from heart disease or stroke than from breast cancer.
Deaths from breast cancer (2%)
Deaths from heart disease or stroke (32%)
Deaths from other cancers (10%)

Do we even need something like this? As though anyone isn't aware of breast cancer or cancer in general or some other just as absurd notion.
I'll never give a single cent to any charity that has a corporate office.
