Breast Cancer Prevention Fund

Here's all that you need to know about BCPF - according to public records 80% of all donation revenue goes directly to Legacy Telemarketing which is owned by BCPF director Jim Paton. He has shamelessly made millions of dollars through this lucrative contract. Donors are asked to donate $90 to pay for a mammogram while never being told of this gross conflict of interest that results in only $16 going towards that cause. Although it's true that some women are receiving mammograms, many more are not because of the donation money that is being converted into owner profit retained by Jim Paton. This is truly appalling and shameful.
