Breast cancer is a well documented symptom that will never be "cured" by an organization passing through the absolute legal minimum of dollars required, 20%, to be called a non-profit. I mostly feel for the great people in this organization who are misled. In just the past year, it has become known that lack of vitamin D, determined by a serum test, is a better marker for breast cancer than a mammogram. An uncomfortable parallel here might be the person who hits their thumb with a hammer, and then looks for a cure for a broken thumb...they get one star because your system won't allow a negative rating.

This organization provides excellent cover for the real question, which is, "Why do women GET breast cancer?". With sympathy for those who have gotten it, I must say that this question has largely been answered; the mammary glands are especially susceptible repositories for all those ingredients on that package of 'food' that you can't pronouce, and don't exist in nature. Add to this the removal of one of your greatest defenses against breast cancer, Vitamin D (which we are now discovering), or more generally speaking, a healthy diet. What Susan's sister, bless her heart, is doing amounts to asking the foxes for help to determine why all the chickens are dying. Read "The Metabolic Typing Diet".

The Great!

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

virtually every publication i pick up recently. However, when i go to find out how many women with a diagnosis of breast cancer were or are vitamin D(etc) deficient, all the people that Susan's sister are funding for 'help' get really quiet..?

Ways to make it better...

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

Ask them to stop this ersatz 'search for a cure' to something that is largely self-inflicted, and help educate the women at risk.
