    I hope so.  I was always disgusted by their schtik of making breast cancer into an industry employing lots of people in marketing and fundraising.

    I also had real problems with the fact that they focused on a cure, rather than prevention.  Yet I've never heard any of them talk about that.  Their focus is all on "what to do if you discover a lump," not on avoiding the lump in the first place.

      That they tried to make breast cancer into something pink, cute, and cuddly.

      Those commercials for the 3-day "Walk for the Cure" that tried to turn a devastating disease into a big old "cancer party" were stomach-turning.
