Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc., National Office
October 11, 2014

No longer donating to this organization that has lost its way. Check out the latest huff post article about their aggressive attacks on small nonprofits who are use the trademarked (are you kidding me?!) phrase "for the cure" in their names. Because Cupcakes for the Cure is going to do so much to harm the Komen brand. I think they're doing a mighty fine job of that themselves.

PHYSICIANS FOR A NATIONAL HEALTHCARE PROGRAM
November 25, 2012

As a family physician, I can attest firsthand to the important work PNHP and California chapter are doing to advance healthcare as a human right. My patients' future depend on the energy and expertise brought by PNHP to the fight for equitable care for all.

City of Hope
January 15, 2010

Despite having over $300 million in reserve assets and holdings at the end of 2008, comprised partly of nearly $97 million obtained from public donations, City of Hope refused to provide lifesaving treatment to a cancer patient of mine whose limited Medi-Cal (California's Medicaid) would not cover the cost of her rare cancer. Instead of hope, they gave her a death sentence. Now she is dying painfully and hopelessly in my hospital while the City of Hope for Rich People Only continues to collect donations they will not use to save her life.

It does have 10 millions bucks - thirty times that, at least.
