I will continue to support them, as I believe they do more good for cancer victims and research than they do bad.

(When politicians politicize issues, aren't they just doing their job?)
I don’t support them because not only do they fund PP but they also fund embroionic stem cell research. Out of all cancers breast cancer is one of the most survivable and others need funding much worse whcih are more often times fatal.
My maternal grandmother and maternal aunt both died from bc. Grandma died of her second round with it at 69, a couple of years after my aunt died at 47. My family does not support Komen. When my aunt was in the acceptance stage of grief, she frequently criticized Komen and the pink propaganda. This was back in the late 90’s when there wasn't as much free-flowing Internet info, and I know now that she would have been against Komen for this link. She couldn't stand them because of their pink crusade. She said the pink desensitizes the issues; cancer isn't pink it's painful and deadly. Wrapping pink scarf around her bald head did not make her feel feminine.
