Komen provides funding for local community health programs through our network of more than 120 affiliates across the United States. Each affiliate is responsible for assessing the breast health service needs—including education, screening, treatment and support—for the residents within its region as well as identifying and providing funding to organizations that can meet those needs. Annually, Komen Affiliates fund programs that provide breast health education and breast screenings for hundreds of thousands of low-income, uninsured, or medically under-served women via nearly 2,000 local organizations, including 19 Planned Parenthood programs.Capello tip to Life Site News.
Remember: Attempting to eradicate breast cancer while funding a group that is actively engaged in two known causes of breast cancer (oral contraception and abortion) makes no sense at all. The Komen Foundation is not worthy of your donations.
