Goal: 20,000 Progress: 3,253
Sponsored by: The Breast Cancer Site

This time Susan G. Komen for the Cure has gone too far. In their quest for donations, Komen has agreed to a partnership with Baker Hughes, a fracking company. Along with a $100,000 donation to Komen, Baker Hughes is distributing pink drill bits to their fracking sites.

Fracking is a toxic practice. According the Concerned Health Professionals of New York, at least 25% of the more than 700 chemicals used in fracking are linked to cancer. As part of the fracking process, these chemicals are pumped into the earth. If these chemicals reach natural water reservoirs, they can threaten public health.

These pink drill bits are doing more to cause cancer than cure it.

Companies like Baker Hughes which flagrantly introduce carcinogens into our environment cannot expect that painting drill bits pink and giving a small donation can erase the damage they are doing to public health.

Komen: Accepting donations from companies that destroy our environment and public health is not the best way to go about defeating breast cancer. As the world's largest breast cancer organization, you must set the standard for donation ethics. If a donor represents a company or cause that spreads carcinogens in our communities, you must refuse the donation! Change your donor ethics now and end your partnership with cancer-causing companies like Baker Hughes!

Dear Nancy Brinker, CEO,

I am shocked to discover that you have allowed and approved a partnership between your nonprofit, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, and Baker Hughes, a fracking company.

These pink drill bits are doing more to cause cancer than cure it.

I know that you are aware that fracking is detrimental to both our environment and the public health. According the Concerned Health Professionals of New York, at least 25% of the more than 700 chemicals used in fracking are linked to cancer. As part of the fracking process, these chemicals are pumped into the earth. If these chemicals reach natural water reservoirs, they can threaten public health.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure should not be allying itself with donors that represent companies or causes that spread carcinogens in our communities. Accepting donations from companies that destroy our environment and public health is not the best way to go about defeating breast cancer. As the world's largest breast cancer organization, you must set the standard for donation ethics. If a donor represents a company or cause that spreads carcinogens in our communities, you must refuse the donation!

Please change your donor ethics now.
