  •  there was probably some tipping point... (5+ / 0-)

    Yes the filing of  Non profit papers to create a Cancer charity is the tipping point of all about money.

    It amazes me that otherwise intelligent folk give money to cancer  charities. where does this money go?
    to  University researchers?  Any intellectual property derived there belongs to the University. No University today will grant back its research for free. There would be a joint venture with a Pharmaceutical to go to "market".

    Would Hospitals. doctors, give such public funded cures out for free?

    never in a million years of profit based health care will public donations go anywhere but to pad the bottom line of  Fat cat Pahrams. Wealthy Universities, and Self serving Charity Employees.

    it is nothing but Corporate welfare dressed up in "do good" intentions.

    Such manipulation of people's good will or grief over personal loss should never be rewarded.

    •  The actual researchers (2+ / 0-)

      - the scientists doing the grunt work - do believe in the cause.  That makes me suspect that if you want to donate money "for the cure" it's probably better to cut out the middleman and try to donate to a grant fund for one of the large Research I institutions that have active cancer study departments.

      Keep your religion out of my government.
