I received a call from a paid solicitor today on behalf of "American Breast Cancer Support Association," which is operated by American Association for Cancer Support. The solicitor could not (or would not) tell me what percentage of contributions is actually used for programs. After some online investigation, it appears that this is the latest iteration of a series of fraudulent organizations that use "breast cancer" in their name. Beware.
