I watched Ambassador Nancy Brinker on Andrea Mitchell Reports a few months ago when she was called to answer for her charity's shameful actions. I have contributed to Komen through fundraising efforts in the past but will do so no longer after watching Ambassador Brinker's terrible defense of what was a political agenda. Brinker should be ashamed for the resulting fallout which has cost money needed for breast cancer research and treatment, but I agree with many others when I say I can not and will not entrust my money with an organization willing to sidestep their mission to use their money toward a political agenda. Last I checked, cancer affects democrats and republicans equally. Ambassador Nancy Brinker is no ambassador for breast cancer awareness and progress. She is nothing more than using the memory of her sister to raise money for political theater. The millions who have supported Komen in the past, including myself, have been swindled by Brinker, and the reactions seen in the last few months have confirmed that Brinker's agenda hurts the fight to end breast cancer. Komen for the Cure's legal actions against other breast cancer charities is also shameful, and I will point out to anyone who wishes to use pink and the pink ribbon to show breast cancer awareness that they are the symbols of a terrible charity. Give to other charities. Komen should lose it's non-profit status for supporting a political agenda.
