Alpe d'Huez said:Okay, I won't delete it. But I will encourage people who visit this link, to take a look at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where another great American cyclist, Freddie Hoffman, has ridden more miles than anyone on the planet in the name of cancer awareness.
Plus, Freddie's a very friendly guy, no controversies surround him, and he isn't making money hand over fist on his "brand".

Experts are calling foul?
Actually this article is supporting LA foundation rather than others, like the American Cancer Society. It asks for focus on Prevention such as nutrition, environment, etc LA donations do not go to cancer researchs.
But then I stopped reading this crap when I got to this. "Researchers are like prostitutes. They work for grant money".
Anybody knows any hot researchers?
elapid said:For those wanting to make a difference, also consider the following in Canada:
Canadian Cancer Society: the largest charitable funder of cancer research in Canada (http://www.cancer.ca/canada-wide/how%20you%20can%20help/cw-make%20a%20donation.aspx)
Terry Fox Run: the world's largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research
Childhood Cancer Foundation (http://www.childhoodcancer.ca/help/index.html)
Please note that LiveStrong is an advocacy agency, they do very little to support cancer research or advance cancer treatments. I am not trying to belittle what LiveStrong does, but I do want people to know that there are many charitable organizations within Canada, most of which are longer standing than LiveStrong, that have long done work to advance the treatment and care of people with cancer by funding and supporting cancer research. I will not reignite the debate about administration costs etc, but please strongly consider who your donations will go to if you are only going to support one or two charities per year.
