Mission: Susan G. Komen for the Cure celebrated its 25th anniversary with a new name, a new logo and a significant accomplishment: $1 billion invested since our inception in the global fight against breast cancer. And we have pledged to invest another $2 billion in the next decade in scientific research and community outreach programs. It will take investments of that level if we are to bring about a dramatic, unprecedented decline in breast cancer deaths over the next 10 to 15 years.

This is a great organization that has done more for breast cancer research and women with breast cancer than just about any other group. I work for Komen and see the effort and dedication that each employee and volunteer puts in to making sure that we are tending to the needs of women and men facing breast cancer and their families.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Scientists that are developing treatments. Women who have been helped by Komen's patient navigation or screening funding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help raise more funds to do more.

I have great sympathy with Susan G. Komen's tragic story. I feel that she would be proud of much that her sister and others in the foundation have done in her name. However, perhaps the Foundation is losing its way. Look at some of the Foundation's recent, questionable campaigns. Pink buckets of Kentucky Fried Chicken! Bottles of booze with pink ribbons? C'mon! Meats fried in oxidizing vegetable oils? Supporting the sale of liver and nerve toxinsl? I don't think that Susan would be OK with those moves. And tell me what on earth could justify a salary of over half a million dollars for the CEOSGK? A victory over cancer? No, 1 out of 7 women contract cancer and once it metastasizes, stage 4, it is incurable, according to SBK website which begs the question. Has SGK fully investigated All potential cancer cures, or only the mainstream medicine orthodoxy which adheres only to cut, burn and poison cancer sufferers? With nearly 1/2 a Billion Dollars in annual revenue, what percentage, if any is devoted to alternative therapies? Indeed, what would a cure for breast cancer do the the Foundation and especially the fat salaries of its top officers? I wonder.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the hope SGK gives to cancer sufferers and the great support to their families.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Stay true to the spirit as well as the letter of Susan's mandate to her sister and others who want to help women suffering with breast cancer.
