Dylan -

I will say it again. There are several breast cancer research foundations who put over 70% of your donations towards research.

If you can tell me of a way that is not research that will allow us all to find a cure, please enlighten us all.

Komen foundation puts only 20.22% of revenue into "Research For A Cure"

A foundation that has re-aligned every aspect of their business to portrait that they are "For the cure" should put a LOT more than 20.22% of your donation into the only way we will ever find a cure, don't you think?

They spend more money on "other expenses" like office supplies and new leather chairs for fancy offices than they do on Research - that in itself is sickening for a foundation who claims their mission is so unique and so critical that they have to sue other foundations for using the phrase "for the cure".

The Great!

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

Only 20.22% of your donation is spent on Research.

Ways to make it better...

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

Reduce the $15,000,000++ payroll, eliminate the $5,000,000++ travel expense.
