I knew a girl who had a top position with the Cancer Society of a state. After she quit she said they were rotten to the core. I make it a point whenever anyone calls for donations to ask how involved Big Pharma is in their group. Most of the callers have no idea. All of the biggies - American Cancer Society, American Heart, and sorry, but the Breast Cancer Group is one of the worst. You name it and they are all deeply beholden to the drug companies. I tell all callers and friends wanting me to "work my street," that I refuse to donate to anyone who has a connection with the drug company and they might just want to investigate themsevles before they start volunteering.
