Good for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which leads the way in supporting breast cancer awareness and research.
In a statement just released, the Komen Foundation refuses to cave in to the despicable attempt by Jane Hamsher and some of her followers to force the Komen Foundation to end its relationship with Hadassah Lieberman under threat that Hamsher’s friends in the blogosphere would stop donating to the Komen Foundation.
Here is the Komen Foundation statement:
Hadassah Lieberman is an important and valued Global Ambassador for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As a Global Ambassador, Ms. Lieberman is focused on helping us reach out and educate women outside our borders about breast cancer,sharing our knowledge and experience in a culturally sensitive way that is making a real impact on the lives of women across the globe. We have every intention of continuing our relationship with Ms. Lieberman in our mutual pursuit of a world without breast cancer.
I think it’s time for a Buy-cott of the Komen Foundation, a worthy cause even without the boycott nonsense.
