My sister died of breast cancer in her early 20's so this has a personal element for me.

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year it is predicted that an estimated 22,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 5300 will die. One out of every nine women in this country will face a battle with breast cancer.

Please remember this by honouring your health and taking the steps necessary to screen yourself for breast cancer. Early detection is key.

Through pink ribbon campaigns and participation in fund raising events, efforts continue to raise funds for research into the prevention of breast cancer. Please consider participating or donating to the various events.

I don't know if this is accurate information, but I've heard that the Susan B. Koman foundation donates to Planned Parenthood. Can anyone confirm this or offer an alternate, pro-life breast cancer organization?
