Lightbulb Are there any Breast Cancer charities that don't have ties to Planned Parenthood?

I'd really like to find a charity that doesn't have ties to Planned Parenthood. Clearly it is sinful to donate money to an organization that has ties to the abortion industry. But my immoral/uninformed/careless friends and family keep sending me requests to donate to Susan G. Koman. I haven't in 10 years (almost did last month....that was close). But instead of just saying no and explaining the pro-abortion slant of Koman, I'd love to be able to say no and then offer instead to donate in their name to a good Breast Cancer charity that explicitly rejects the abortion industry. Are there any??? Otherwise my prayers are all they're getting.

Thanks for any advice!

I used to work as a Pension Calculator for an Insurance Company that provided pensions to non-profits. The salaries that the employees of cancer charities earned was truly sickening. They were reaping salaries in the millions. I am talking about the American Cancer Society, United Way, and others. They are all joined at the hip with Planned Parenthood. Do some research on the internet. The Cancer Charities are more concerned with raising money for donations then they are in finding a cure for cancer.

Even Armstrong's Livestrong.org gives money to Planned Parenthood.

Yeah, that's what I figured. Are Catholic Charities completely safe? Someone told me they are independant of the Church. I don't understand how any organization that uses the Church's name can be independant of the Church, but hopefully they are being true to the Church's teachings.

You could make donations to hospitals that provide free mamograms to low-income people. We have a local hospital that has a mamo-van that helps women in low-income areas. As far as research goes, I don't know of any options.

Go volunteer at the Breast Center at your hospital. There are women there who would be thrilled just to have you sit with them and talk.

Find out who in your parish is suffering from breast cancer treatment, take her family a meal, babysit her kids, mow her yard. Just care.

Love our neighbors.
