Avoiding Breast Cancer Charity Scams

October is officially here which means pumpkins, changing leaves and lots of pink.  October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  What started out two decades ago as a few pink ribbons has now turned into a full-fledged bubblegum pink frenzy, thanks  to the untiring devotion of charitable organizations, like the Susan G. Komen Foundation, who have been dedicated to raising awareness about this devastating disease. According to the American Cancer Society, a little less than 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime.   This means that more likely than not, you have a friend, mother, sister, grandmother or cousin who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
