    Absolutely! I think it is a great organization representing a great cause.

    Yes. It is one of the best and lasting charitable organizations that I know. All because of one woman's love for her sister.

    I actually do not support the Susan G Komen Foundation.  I give to several charities, but not this one.

    I don't like the way they have sued so many other charities for use of the word "cure".  Breast cancer is a terrible disease, but by no means the only disease that needs a cure.  I don't like charities that attack other charities causing donated money to go to lawyers instead of their mission.

    I also don't like way in which they have commercialized the disease.  Awareness is one thing, but I feel they are making you more aware of the Susan G Komen Foundation than the risk factors and prevention tips of breast cancer. 

    Just my opinion.
