How the Susan G. Komen Foundation Lost Its Way

How the Susan G. Komen Foundation Lost Its Way: "Before Susan G. Komen died of breast cancer in 1980, she asked her sister Nancy to promise to work towards finding a cure. Now, more than 30 years later, the organization that bears Suzy's name is still fighting — but instead of fighting for a cure, it seems to be fighting for an agenda. Who was Susan Komen, and what would she think of the foundation's downward spiral? Would she even want her name on it anymore?

Susan G. Komen was diagnosed with cancer at age 33, and succumbed to the illness three years later, at age 36. Susan G. Komen For the Cure was established shortly thereafter in 1982 by her older sister, Nancy Brinker. Since the foundation's inception, over $1.9 billion has been raised for breast cancer research and prevention. All well and good, right?..."

It is a shame that a woman who died from cancer's name is dragged through the mud because of her sister and Republican Politics.
