The Susan G. Komen organization was a good idea that morphed into a slushfund for its founder. Nancy Brinker and her group got to the point that the purpose of the organization was to raise money. I had read a descriptive tale from one woman who did the walk every year, raised untold amounts of donations...but when SHE needed assistance when she developed breast cancer she could never get in touch with them. Can't find it even though I spent the last 15 minutes looking.
I did find this article that really rips on the organization and their pinkification of the world. Warning: It's a very angry article filled with lots of "fingers-in-the-ears" kinds of words. The writer takes no prisoners in his rant. If you're interested, you can find the article here: The Susan G. Komen Foundation: Why It Sucks
Also, if you google "Susan G. Komen scams" you get a ton of links. One of the links took you to a page with...more links!
Moral of the story? Investigate any fundraising group to see exactly what they do with that money.
