The Breast Cancer Society, A United Front Against Cancer

Breast cancer is a silent killer. It does not exhibit symptoms until it has progressed to its last stages from which it cannot be cured. The disease is devastating even during therapy as it is psychologically stress inducing for women and takes a heavy toll on their body. Fortunately, the Breast Cancer Society is here to help those in need. Over 2.9 million people have beaten breast cancer and the Breast Cancer Society is doing its best to make sure more can survive. TBCS’s programs aim to provide patients with the best available treatment. They also help rehabilitation and re-entering society.

Global coverage with International Medical Aid
The Breast Cancer Society does not limit itself to the United States and through its International Medical Aid program it extends its services globally. TBCS aims to help any patient suffering from breast cancer. Patients are given both medicines and treatment to cure the disease. In countries where poor medical services are prevalent, the Breast Cancer Society sends its qualified doctors to attend to the patients.

Donate and make a difference through the Hope Supply Program
TBCS handles its donations and charitable work through its centralized Hope Supply program. Through the Hope Supply program, people are open to donate as they please. TBCS also seeks sponsors. With the funds and supplies, the Hope Supply program aims to lend a helping hand to the patients so they will not have to support the entire cost of the treatment. Companies and Sponsors are asked to increase public awareness about the Breast Cancer Society and to donate for the patients suffering from the disease. The funds are used to supplement the costs patients have to bear for treatment and basic necessities for the patients such as clothes, wigs, household products and expensive medication.  Hope Supply centres act as stations to donate to needy patients.

Treatment at your doorstep though In Home Care Program
The Breast Cancer Society has formulated the In Home Care program for patients who cannot tend themselves or for families who are either unaware of proper treatment or are too busy with everyday lives to give full attention to their loved ones. The In Home Care program provides the patients with doctors and nurses which give their services at the doorstep of the patient. This eases the burden from the family of caring entirely for the patient or in cases the patient lives alone. The essential goal of this program is to ease the burden from patients and help in a speedy recovery.

Easing money woes through Financial Assistance
The majority of funds are channelled into the Financial Assistance Program. Through the funds, charity drives and awareness programs are initiated as early diagnosis is the key to preventing breast cancer. This program allows patients needing financial assistance to avail help and have partial coverage of the treatment.

Education continuation with Empower One Scholarship Fund
Cancer does not strike with warning and for women undergoing education the financial burden forces them to make heavy choices. The Empower One Scholarship Fund program is designed to find patients eligible to receive the scholarship grant by The Breast Cancer Society to help them continue their education.

TBCS - Hailing you on the road to recovery from Breast Cancer

The breast cancer malignancy can only be stopped by early diagnosis, treatment and care.  The breast cancer surfaces the second highest place in mortality rate among all other cancer types. There are various factors which participate in making this disease aggressive. It has been estimated that in various countries every one woman out of eight is diagnosed with breast cancer. This is increasing at alarming rate but the cure is possible if timely treated.

Why breast cancer mortality rate is still high?

The pain and ordeal of breast cancer is not hidden from anyone. The breast cancer poses direct and indirect bad consequences on the woman diagnosed with breast cancer and her family respectively. It beleaguers the whole family with stress, ignorance, discomfort and household mismanagement. Moreover the complete treatment of this very ailment requires proper and correct guideline, early diagnosis, and full attention towards the patient, heavy and continuous expanse. 

Provision of all these requirements become a hard nut to crack for the families which are not fiscally stable, dependent on the a single sufferer mother, having no awareness about breast cancer before and the people who can’t pay appropriate attention towards the breast cancer sufferer because of their busy schedule of life. These circumstances make the situation more horrible thus bringing unfortunately death in the fate of breast cancer sufferer.

The real hope

As the result of such heart taking situation The breast cancer society is continuously striving to eradicate the breast cancer from this earth. The breast cancer society is the no for profit charity which really comes upto the original meanings of charity. Being unblemished cancer society it has been saving thousands of precious lives of women and is promising to produce more breast cancer survivors.

Borderless assistance

TBCS is based in Mesa, Arizona but its goal is not only limited at the local scale. Internationally TBCS provides financial, medical and technological aid the poor and under developing world for the same purpose. Many health facility units of those countries collaborate with TBCS for treating and reducing the mortality rate of breast cancer from their countries.

The caregivers

TBCS not only provides financial aid but it also believes in humanity. Along with the other programs with the in home care program of TBCS many breast cancer patients are transforming to the breast cancer survivors. We provide best and trained caregivers for the patients and families facing problems during breast cancer treatment. The feeling of loneliness during breast cancer contributes for dropping a person’s confidence, hope and health drastically. To cater such problems the aforementioned service was started.

Empowering the survivors

Another important program of TBCS is the empowering the women after recovery for the purpose of gaining their confidence, self-respect and respectable place in the society. This program was started for those females who are main earning hands of their family. During treatment phase they lose their jobs and earnings. Therefore, The breast cancer society provides educational aid to them which is promising for securing their future.

When is the Best Time to Give to the Breast Cancer Society?

When is the Best Time to Give to the Breast Cancer Society?

Truthfully speaking, anytime you want to give to the charity of your choice is a great time to give. There are some times of year, however, when some charitable organizations find themselves in greater need than others.

This will vary greatly from one organization to another. For instance, charities that provide shelter for the homeless have greater need of supplies during winter months when the homeless are most likely to seek shelter.

Other charities find that they are often overflowing with gifts and donations around the holidays. These organizations have greater need during the early months of summer and into fall. These are times when donations are few and needs remain high.

The Breast Cancer Society needs donations throughout the year. Breast cancer, unfortunately, is not a seasonal condition. It strikes at any time.

You have plenty of options available to consider when giving to the Breast Cancer Society and other charities. These are a few of them. One is sure to appeal to you if you're serious in your desire to support worthy charitable causes.

Yearly Gifts

These are donations or gifts you give at the same time every year. You can make them part of your annual financial plans. Some people set aside a specific amount of money each month and rotate it into 12 different charities throughout the year -- one for each month. Others set aside a specific amount of money each month in order to combine the funds for a larger annual gift. The choice is yours and all donations and gifts are appreciated.

Seasonal Gifts

There are four seasons in a year. Some people prefer to give seasonally to the charities of their choosing. These gifts may coincide with dividends, quarterly bonuses, etc. Regardless of why you choose to give seasonal gifts, it's a simple matter to set up quarterly gift giving to charities such as the Breast Cancer Society.

Monthly Gifts

These may be the simplest gifts to give. You can set up a monthly gift where the money is automatically deducted from your account (in the amount you approve) month after month. This ensures that financial gifts to organizations like the Breast Cancer Society that need funds throughout the year are available when they're needed rather than only available at certain times of the year. You can choose the time of the month the money is sent each month and enjoy hassle free giving at its finest.

One Time Gifts
Some people do not want to provide regular gifts or donations to charitable groups. Perhaps they've recently inherited a lump sum of money, won an award, or had a life-event that makes giving now, is attractive. One-time gifts are the bread and butter of many charitable organizations and perfectly acceptable and appreciated at any time of the year.

Never be afraid to give because you feel your gift is too small, too larger, or unwanted. All Breast Cancer Society gifts are appreciated a great deal by the women who benefit from the services your gifts provide them through the charitable organization.

The Holidays are Coming -What Do You Give Someone Who has Everything?

The Holidays are Coming - What Do You Give Someone Who has Everything?
Every year the holidays come and there is that one person on your gift-giving list that you have no idea what kind of gift to give. It's that one person who already has everything and is fairly self-sufficient to get the things he or she needs or wants. While it's true that everyone has something on his or her wish list, it's not always easy to figure out what that something is. If you have a hard target on your Christmas list this year, these are a few great gift ideas to keep in mind.

Gift-of-the-Month Club Memberships

These clubs exist for a wide range of items, mostly consumables. They include everything from books to wine, coffee, cheesecake, beer and more. Most importantly of all, it's a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. Your mother, grandmother, uncle, or friend will think of you each month as the gift arrives. Other membership groups to consider include those that offer cosmetic items delivered each month (there are several from which to choose) for the fashionista or beauty guru on your gift list. This is an especially great gift for teens and college-aged girls as they include high-end items they wouldn't ordinarily be able to purchase for themselves.

Sentimental Gifts

The gift of heart and soul is nothing to scoff. Create a slideshow of memories, put together a family cookbook of favorite recipes, knit a scarf in your old school colors, frame works of art you've created yourself, or even write a book of poetry dedicated to your friend or loved one. It's a sentimental gift that can't be purchased in stores and no amount of money can buy. You know best, what your talents are. You can create a gift making use of the skills you have to make your friend laugh, cry, or simply feel warm and loved all over every time he or she looks at your gift.

Donate Your Time or Money to the Breast Cancer Society in Honor of Your Friend or Loved One

There are few people who haven't been touched by breast cancer. Whether it's a mother, daughter, aunt, sister, grandmother, teacher, mentor, or friend, almost everyone in the country knows someone who has had breast cancer. Giving the gift of a donation to a charity that takes such as hand's on approach to assisting women who are experiencing breast cancer today is a gift that keeps on giving for your friend and to all the women whose lives are touched by the generous gift you've given in your friend's name. If your friend is someone who would not approve of the idea of you making large monetary gifts in his or her name, consider donating your time in honor of your friend instead. 

There are many ways to give, after all.Gift giving can be quite the challenge in today's high-tech and modern society. However, low-tech gifts like these can put smiles on the faces of your toughest gift buying challenges.

Angels in the Pink Parade

Angels in the Pink Parade

Breast cancer is fast emerging as one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in women. In the United States alone, the incidence is about one in every eight and is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in women. While there is evidence of a genetic influence (the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes), most of the cancers are caused by factors like age, diet, hormonal imbalances and physical factors in the environment that are yet to be definitively tied with breast cancer but are suspected to play a major role in its pathophysiology.

Breast Cancer Support Groups
The entire experience of cancer can be very daunting for any individual, and since breast cancer has another aspect that is related directly to women, it can be quite the harrowing journey, to ease which is the aim of all these breast cancer groups that have sprung up. These present an opportunity for women going through the same situation to get together and help each other both emotionally and psychologically.

The Breast Cancer Society; Angels in the Pink Parade

The Breast Cancer society is one such group that is based in Arizona, U.S. and works as a non-profit organization for the betterment of Breast Cancer victims all over the states as well as all over the world, especially in developing countries. It has numerous programs that are directed towards providing funds for research and education, as well as direct assistance to the women going through this ordeal.

What makes the Breast Cancer Society unique?

The Breast Cancer society is different from all the other cancer support groups out there as it has more of a direct approach to helping Breast Cancer victims that includes financial assistance, educational loans and job referrals, everyday supplies as well as providing a platform for others going through the same process to sit down and share their experiences, since most of the already existing programs are more focused towards raising funds for research to help find a ‘cure’ for cancer, which doesn’t do much to help the people already undergoing treatment. 

The Hope Supply Program; Supplies, Support, Sisterhood

The Hope Supply program is one such initiative by the Breast Cancer Society that works by approaching retailers and manufacturers for donations from their overstock and clearance items, which include things like prosthetics, wigs, clothing, hygiene and household products and other necessary everyday items, and then providing them for free to the breast cancer patients so as to lessen some of the financial load that cancer treatments are infamous for. Currently, the Hope Supply Program is functioning out of two locations, one in Arizona and another in Pennsylvania.

How can I get involved and participate in the Breast Cancer Society?

For people looking to join the organization in helping and supporting people with Breast Cancer, the simplest way is to give a donation. You can also host your own event to raise money for the society, or even donate a vehicle, or be a part of the events hosted by the society like Awareness walks and Cruise for the Cure.

TBCS: Volunteers’ support to fight against breast cancer

TBCS: Volunteers’ support to fight against breast cancer
Breast cancer is the type of cancer that is the most commonly occurs one in the female gender and is one of the highest mortality rates. Statistically speaking, there is a 12 percent probability of any woman being struck by this dreadful disease. It not only ravages the body, but causes extreme emotional upsetting as well. Women are more concerned with their physique than men, which is why such diseases can make them unsocial and introvert.

Financial burden that strikes families undergoing the medical procedure for breast cancer is quite is enormous. If insurance doesn’t cover such tragedies, breast cancer victims usually seek aid from charity organizations. Breast cancer may strike as fatal disease, but the fact of the matter is that the mortality rate is very low and the cancer itself is treatable. It can be easily detected by frequent health checks and can be treated if diagnosed at an early stage.

Since cancer is a disease that completely destroys the patients, it is very hard for cancer victims to tend for themselves. Families play a huge role in helping cancer victims come back to normal life, so do cancer rehabilitation centers. In fact, most families tend to opt for good cancer rehabilitations for their loved ones nowadays.

A big increase in cancer rehabilitation centers can be noted over the past couple of years. However, with the growth of this sector many people are starting to take advantage of cancer victims through elaborately run scams. Such charities and organizations are very hard to catch because no strict regulations are yet imposed on such organizations and since most of them acquire their funds through charities or investors, it becomes a very strenuous effort to keep checks and balances.

Treating breast cancer involves a lot of money and the expenditure of continuing the therapy can strain even families with stable incomes and leave them helpless. All hope is not lost, for there are many different organizations that are willing to lend the victims a helping hand in this matter. However, most of them are either very ineffective charities that have no efficiency, involve thieves in the hierarchy who are stealing form them or are mostly scammers who are looking to prey on unsuspecting victims.

These scammers are not bound by any moral code, do not differentiate poor from rich and do not care if the victim has breast cancer and is already in a dire situation. In the midst of chaos of so many organizations that all claim to be the one to aid and guide the victim through this nightmare, very few exist that are effective and sincere in their ideology.

The Breast Cancer Society is a well reputed and authenticated organization that is legitimately doing whatever it takes to help the patients who approach them. Situated in Mesa, Arizona, this charity is among the few that are looking for the well-being of their patients and helping them in all the ways to cope with breast cancer, both emotionally and financially. The Breast Cancer Society has a very good standing among charities, supplies the patients with medical items that they require, direct them to reputed people and institutes that can aid them and aids them financially and emotionally in this trial.

One of the most inspiring things that can be noted about the Breast Cancer Society is their well-established community of volunteers. These volunteers whole-heatedly devote themselves to service breast cancer. Their activities range from helping breast cancer victims to accumulating funds for services.

Personal Gains Beating a Noble Cause

Breast Cancer: Personal Gains Beating a Noble Cause

Apparently there is no cause better than a personal gain, ooops! I meant a noble humanitarian cause, or did I? October is round the corner and soon it will be time when pink ribbons will be fluttering around the globe as campaign against breast cancer.  What started out as noble life saving cause has transformed into a money minting machine.

Come October, and the Pink Parade will be at its full pomp and show. The Pink fever will spread like a disease. Once you get the fever it gets hard not to participate in the pink drive. Form big bad boys of wwe and nfl to movie stars and film celebrities, you will find everyone hoisting a shade of pink, apparently struggling against breast cancer.  Every ad that you see and every product that you pick will be pink one way or the other.

It all seems for a good cause but then there are breast cancer charities that during this time of accelerated awareness campaigns, will pry upon your generosity and kind heartedness. These organizations will not only lure you into their fold of buying their merchandise but will also convince you to donate big bucks. Some sell the bait of a cure. Claiming to be a research group, working extensively on finding a cure for breast cancer, these organizations will pester you or their benefactor of more donations.

When questioned about expenditures and progress, they will do everything to divert attention.  Others go for a more subtle approach, in which they present themselves as an organization or charity actively contributing to a breast cancer society, recovery centre, or hospital. No one doubts their participation, and they may be participating regularly. The question is about the effectiveness and extent of their involvement and how the donations are utilized. Some organizations are well intentioned but not well organized they are spending more on staff and director salaries then their actual contributions.

There are some tax exempt organizations which are in fact a money making front. How do they accomplish this feat? Well they not only advertise their product indirectly but also sell their merchandize, in the name of the pink parade. Some companies directors and C.E.O’s draw extensive salaries from such charities.

Now there is no need to get upset and hold back the helping hand.  However you can do a bit better and research about the people or organization you want to give your money too. First and foremost you must avoid the email scams. Validate the legitimacy of the organization you’re donating to. You can find a comprehensive list of well reputed charities online. 

Refer to watch dogs or institutions and reviews to verify the existence of the charity and to validate the authenticity of the organization. Make sure that the money you donate is being utilized effectively. Contribute directly rather than relying on others to make the contribution on your behalf. Cross check with the hospitals and care centres they are claiming to corroborate with. Avoid dolling out cash to people claiming to be representatives of an alleged organization.

Breast Cancer Diagnosis - How Do You Tell the People You Love?

Breast Cancer Diagnosis - How Do You Tell the People You Love?
The only thing that changes the life of a woman faster than a breast cancer diagnosis is motherhood. In one defining moment, everything she thinks about the world or believes about herself and her body is changed. She feels betrayed by her body, afraid for the future, fearful for the physical ramifications, and concerned about so many other issues. One of the most terrifying aspects, at this point in the diagnosis is how to tell your family and friends. Here are a few clues to help you break the news to your loved ones.
Your Children Need to Hear it from You
We live in a day and age where everything is on the Internet and secrets are hard to keep. Even if you tell your friends in confidence, there's no guarantee that it won't spread around the web like a wildfire. Someone is going to say something to your kids, overhear a conversation, or read something on Facebook. You need to tell your family before you tell anyone outside your home and your children need to be among the first to hear the news.
Keep it Age Appropriate
Children need to know you have cancer, but they don't need all the sordid details. Keep the message short and upbeat. Ask if they have any questions but allow them a little bit of time to process the news too. Be understanding if they lash out, become angry, or seem confused. These are normal behaviors and have nothing to do with your child's love for you. Generally, they only lash out because they love you so much.
Tell Your Spouse the Truth and Be Prepared for Anything
While every man would like to think he'll react perfectly for his wife at a moment like this, the truth is no one knows how they're going to react until they're in the moment. Some men never miss a bit and get right down to the business of solving/curing your cancer. Other men become irrationally angry. 
Cancer is the one thing your husband, who would jump in front of a train for you if given the choice, cannot protect you from and it frightens him, makes him angry, and leaves him feeling powerless. This can be a volatile situation in your emotional state. Be prepared and try not to let it hurt you if he lashes out right now. He will come around and feel incredibly guilty if it's any consolation.
Reveal Your Condition to Select Family Members
Once you've told your immediate family, be selective in who you reveal the information to outside the home. Don't reveal on a wide scale (or to your gossipy friend who has a trigger finger on her Facebook feed at all times) until you're ready for an onslaught of questions and commentary. Once the people who need to know are informed, relax and allow nature to take its course. For the most part, word will get around more quickly than you'd care to admit. 
If you're a person of faith, you might also be interested in discussing your condition with a respected member of the clergy in your church. Prayer support is always comforting at times like these and your religious leader may have insight or access to resources such as The Breast CancerSociety, that can provide assistance to get you through the treatment process, that you would not know about otherwise.

Breast Cancer Charity Scams

Breast cancer is the most rapidly increasing cancerous disease among women. On average a woman has a 12 percent chance of developing breast cancer during her lifetime. A massive hike in the number of breast cancer patients has been witnessed as of late. This might be a scary fact, but the actual fact of the matter is that breast cancer victims have a high survival rate. Breast cancer society has recorded a three percent fatality rate.

A lot of statistics and research has been put into breast cancer over the last decade. With these statistics, a large number of charitable organizations have opened at every nook and cranny of the world. Most of these organizations are not authentic and do not guarantee that the entire donated amount goes to the cause of research and treatment of breast cancer victims. Nonetheless, there are organizations which are trying their best for this cause. However, only a handful of such organizations can be truly listed.

A lot of scam organizations have appeared in the market. With the help of fake charity organizations money-thirsty and unethical people have created a mask for themselves, which helps them accumulate money in the name of humanity. Most of these donations made do not reach deserving people. Many a time, donations are lost before they reach the actual cause. Instead, they are pocketed by fake charity organization owners.

There has been a trend of going pink with the campaign of raising donations and also putting up something pink on the products instigate the compassionate side of the purchaser which would urge him to buy the product which promises of donating the purchase price for the research and treatment of the breast cancer. Most of the times there is no guarantee that the entire purchase price would go to the charity. Many times people consider this cancer spree a marketing opportunity rather than a disease with which people are fighting.

Unlike these scam organizations, there are good Cancer charities that have great reputation for their scam-free services. They are working for the breast cancer patients and their families, providing them with the best opportunities of medical treatment. These organizations have been established for the direct assistance of the people fighting with the disease. They are working to pull through the families struggling with the emotional, physical and financial turmoil which is caused by the disease.

Unlike many scamming organizations, they promise to help the people stricken with breast cancer and do their best to make the families at ease too. They provide not only direct assistance but also provide medicals supplies, referral services, education to the patients.

Most of such organizations are running partnership programs all over the world and help people as well as charity programs in developing countries too where the opportunities are even less. Their partner organizations include the nonprofit hospitals, clinics, missions and rural physicians who work for the breast cancer patients, in order to rehabilitate them.

Breast Cancer Donations

Breast Cancer DonationsBreast cancer is one of the most common types of tumor developments in women. The disease can also occur in men but the chances are very few as compared to women. So women usually become the victim of breast cancer. Due to its prevalence in the world there are many societies which have devoted themselves in breast cancer prevention and cure. These societies are undoubtedly doing a great job for humanity but a large number of those societies are just faking out to make money. They don’t put their efforts of money in the survival of breast cancer patients and are only working to get donations.

Many generous people around the world make huge donations for the treatment and control of breast cancer and these scam societies take huge financial benefits. Their services in the prevention of disease are negligible because they only aim looting people rather participating in this noble cause. Breast cancer is a disease with multiple consequences which also vary from area to area. In order to provide better treatment facilities extensive research is required to address individual problems of patients of a specific geographic area. People sometime pay huge donations to these scam charities for doing extensive research on the disease control, prevention and mitigation. As a result these fraudulent organizations develop fake papers to show to the donors but in reality they don’t do any kind of research.

Breast cancer treatment is the most significant outcome of these breast cancer donations. People in the less privileged areas or with insufficient money consult with some local charities to offer them free medication for the disease. Some fraud societies claim lots of money from the government and as well as from the local people to arrange medication for these people but usually provide fake medicines. Such medicines are formulated by some scam pharmaceutical companies and can be easily accessed. In this way patients feel that they are being treated but the end result is the unfortunate death of those patients. The reason is unavailability of pure medication and healthcare services. These fake societies should be strictly banned or they should be highly penalized. They are taking huge monetary funds from different international organizations in the name of breast cancer donations but doing nothing for this cause. The situation is more alarming in countries where there is no check and balance on these fraud societies.

All these circumstances don’t mean that there are no legitimate breast cancer society. In fact, there are breast cancer organizations that have a high repute and international standing due to their remarkable services for breast cancer cure and prevention. They are providing exclusive home supply programs with which patients can get their medication at their homes just for enhancing their level of ease. Similarly they offer various types of financial aid for breast cancer patients. Due to these outstanding offers patients feel relieved and can go for their medication without the fear of expenses. Their efforts for breast cancer prevention must be strongly appreciated.

Breast Cancer Donations Scams

People use their sharp minds either for good reason or for deceiving others. Due to this discrepancy scam has strengthened its roots in every walk of life because people give priority to their self benefits instead of giving benefits to others. Many non-profit organizations declaring themselves supporters for breast cancer fighters use the tag “non -profit” but they don’t really honor it. These organizations raise funds and voice to encourage the donations from your side for helping the breast cancer fighters. But the truth behind this practice is to collect the scam breast cancer donations for their own revenue.
We see a lot many charitable companies call for your donations for breast cancer treatment through telephony, website or via fundraising walks and manufacturing goods. People blindly donate for their eternal satisfaction whenever the charity seems to be committed for such noble cause. But have you ever thought that where your donations go actually? No doubt these donations go for supporting those organizations but not for the actual purpose rather they uncaringly use the money for upgrading their administration, websites and their company name.
In the current month the court has charged a sham charity for looting innocent people in the name of donating “Coalition against Breast Cancer”. Similarly, Planned Parenthood, American Cancer Society, Pink and NFL breast cancer campaigns are same organizations following the scam breast cancer donations.
The breast cancer donations and fundraising should be for helping and assisting the innocent breast cancer patients these should not be used as the business opportunity. Even then many renowned companies collaborate with such defraud charities and both make money out of it instead of giving them to the true deservers.
Many people argue that hundreds of thousands of dollars are given to the charities by the compassionate people who really want to bring breast cancer to the end but still we see rise in breast cancer cases in North America where every 1 woman has cancer out of 8 women. From the last 20 years America is fighting for breast cancer eradication but why our efforts are not effective yet? The reason is definitely because of breast cancer scam donations and their utilization.
Be aware of such sham and swindle scammers who enjoy on thousands of dollars they collect in the name of donations for breast cancer fighters. They not only play with life of patient but also affect their families. The mortality rate of breast cancer may become low if these charities do what they have committed to the nation.
Only a few breast cancer charities fulfill all the requirements expected to have in any charity working for battling breast cancer. They never ruin your money and effort you made for protecting people from breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Fundraising Scam

Whenever we hear about the shams and frauds related to breast cancer awareness and treatment, the question arises in one’s mind that how such evil charities can make money out of this noble cause? Probably every day we come across with fundraising of many charities claim to support the breast cancer fighters for their cure. In fact the donors enthusiastically open their pocketbooks whenever the charity alleges that it is combating against menace of breast cancer. But how much of your donation goes in right hands? Many scam societies are busy in defrauding people and interestingly they are much successful in snatching your money in the shape of scam fundraising.

Can your few miles walk provide cure to the breast cancer victims? Numerous charitable organizations claim that they are non-profit organizations and seek your support for battling for breast cancer combaters. But in reality these are sham commitments and sham organizations that play wickedly with the lives of people either donors or breast cancer patients. Many charities are running and sustaining with the donations they receive from you in the name of breast cancer donations. Instead of utilizing theses donations for encouraging new researches and financial assistance to the impoverished victims they are being consumed on charity’s administration and self benefits.

We should be aware of such scam fundraising charities yet it seems difficult to gather information about the charity real wicked goals behind breast cancer fundraising. In common observation, we see that whenever the products are sold with having pink ribbon upon them people blindly purchase them with their good intention of supporting the companies for combating breast cancer but in reality many of them make money for their own benefits out of your good intentions.

However, this is one side of the picture. We can’t forget the genuine efforts made by breast cancer charities promising for raising the voice for scam free cause of fighting breast cancer. The whole amount generated in their fundraising sessions entirely goes for enriching education and research regarding breast cancer society and treatment respectively.

From these charities, the unprivileged breast cancer patients receive financial assistance, monthly scholarships and even the college degree during the phase of recovery. Fearlessly thousands of volunteers participate and receive donations in various fundraising walks and awareness sessions.

These charitable organizations are truly committed to fight against breast cancer. If one is getting skeptic for donating to breast cancer charities due to his past bad experience with any sham charity then he should go for complete investigation. The reviews and testimonials can help a lot to know the reputation of breast cancer organizations and people’s experience with them.

Breast Cancer Society Scam

Defrauding people in the name of noble causes is not only unethical but also unlawful. The fact is that scams have plagued every walk of life. The CBS New York, reporting of the Breast Cancer Scam in June 2013, revealed that the fake charity looted thousands of dollars from people in the name of fundraising for breast cancer. It was closed by the court orders, and it had to deposit $4.6 million to the court, the amount collected by placing phone calls to the public urging them to join hands with the ‘Coalition Against Breast Cancer’.

The court ordered to distribute the amount among the most celebrated nonprofit organizations working for the prevention of breast cancer worldwide. It’s not the only example of swindling people with charitable fundraising scams. Various other such charities and societies are yet operating, claiming to provide financial assistance and home care services to those who are battling with the breast cancer disease. The people who are compassionately urged to donate for the breast cancer sufferers are often trapped by the swamp of evil scammers.

Such sham fundraising societies sometimes overshadow the work of those legitimate charities that are devotedly working to help impoverished people to ensure expensive treatment and provide funds to the research projects on breast cancer.

However, there are many good examples of genuine work, having untarnished service record. Such scam-free charities give surety to their donors for the utilization of their money in right place for the noble cause.  These organizations raise funds periodically for providing the breast cancer patients a variety of services such as financial assistance, medical supplies, referral services, awareness campaigns and in-home care. They own well-established working system for the collection of donations and their appropriate utilization. The donations are also used for encouraging new researches and educating people on breast cancer round the globe. 

The scam societies claim that they are working for the noble cause of minimizing the deadly threats of breast cancer. They run funds collection campaigns in various communities or on their websites. Do you know how much of your donation is actually going to research, education or treatment of breast cancer? Many scam charities like American Breast Cancer Society, NFL and Planned Parenthood are badly degrading the noble cause of charity work.

Breast Cancer Scam - How Not to Fall for It

Breast Cancer Scam - How Not to Fall for It
Anyone who has been touched, even peripherally from the horrible condition known as breast cancer is forever changed by it. Whether it was a mother, daughter, sister, friend, or even distant relative, the toll it takes on the individual and family can be devastating. The whole it can leave behind is one that's drastic enough for blockbuster movie actresses to take drastic action in hopes of avoiding putting her children through the experience of watching their mother struggle with, and possibly succumb, to the cancer. Sadly, for many people who would otherwise be happy to donate their money to such a worthy cause, ending breast cancer, it only takes one breast cancer scam to ruin all potentially worthy causes in their books.

As citizens of the world, we want to help eliminate breast cancer and the impact it has on people and families throughout the United States and around the world. Nothing would please us more than to see this disease that destroys families, confidence, and, sometimes, lives stamped out once and for all. To make that happen, charitable donations are necessary. That's why it's so important take steps to avoid becoming the victim of a breast cancer scam.

Donate Smarter - Research the Reputation of the Charitable Organization
There are countless charities out there that are legitimately seeking research dollars to fund a cure, toiletries to make hospital stays a little more comfortable, hair for lifelike wigs, and countless other items and dollars designed to make life more comfortable, more enjoyable, and a little bit fuller for breast cancer sufferers. Take your time to find out all the pertinent details about the organization you're considering offering your support to. Once you know what kind of work they do, who benefits most from the dollars you give, and how those dollars are likely to be spent, you'll feel more confident about your decisions to give to that organization.

The more you dig, the more likely it is that you will find something questionable about the organization if it exists. Most scams don't have the time, the expertise, or the depth to provide too much of a history to go along with the con.

Gather the Facts
Transparency is important for all charitable organizations -- especially when it comes to Uncle Sam. They must fill out certain tax information, specifically the 990 form in order to keep the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) off their backs. This form provides a great deal of information would-be investors, such as yourself will find useful and even interesting about the organization and where it spends its money.

In addition to keeping Uncle Sam happily at bay, most legitimate charity organizations want to get the word out about the work they do with the money you share with them. In order to do this, many of them offer full disclosure of how funds are spent on their web pages and invite visitors to get involved whether it's by donating time or money to the cause.

Investigate Independent Reviews
Look outside the box and away from their own PR testimonials. See what people are saying away from the website about the organization. If you're hearing mostly good things on the street, then it's probably a safe bet for your charitable investment and you can quit worrying so much about a breast cancer scam knocking on your back door.

Charitable giving is one way that we have to feel like we're doing something important to help people suffering from breast cancer. It's our way of taking power back from something that leaves us feeling powerless. Constant concerns of breast cancer scams can rob us of that joy if we aren't careful. Arm yourself with the facts and you shouldn't have any trouble finding an authentic and legitimate organization, such as Breast Cancer Society at breast cancer society blog, for your charity spending.
