Letter to the Editor: Better sources than Komen for breast cancer research

ULM Hawkeye

Dear Editor,
I do appreciate The Hawkeye’s efforts to spread awareness about breast cancer in its most recent issue. This is noble.
However, The Susan Komen foundation also has a poor relationship with Planned Parenthood and a poor understanding of women’s health and women’s rights, which is too ironic considering what Komen is supposed to be for.  There are alternatives, such as the National Breast Cancer Coalition and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Thanks and have a good week,
Karen Niemla,
