    In 2010, 27% of funds Komen received went to administrative costs .  Only 23.5 % goes to research.  

    I would not have found out about this if weren't for this horrible decision of theirs.  I am currently receiving treatment for breast cancer.  My daughter and I talked about doing the Komen walk.  No way I will do it now.  I will donate to PP and other cancer orgs.  This one stinks.
