Gavin explains what's wrong with the Susan G Komen charity and more!
Today, I’m delighted to welcome MaryAnn Means-Dufrene. Having previously served as deputy chief of staff for Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, she recently accepted the position of Executive Director for the Susan G. Komen Great Forth Worth Affiliate.
We’ll be talking about the process of moving from one career to another; particularly the shift from public service to non-profit management. We’ll talk about how she’s adapting from managing a department to running an entire organization. We’ll also touch on her thoughts on non-profit management, as well as her vision for the organization in the future.

For Saturday, we'll have more hot topics, plus know about the Susan G. Komen group, during this month of breast cancer awareness...and the return of Monica Lewinsky (back in the public eye again).
Think before you PINK! With Vicki Saputo, RN. Pink washing or "pink ribbons" can be a marketing ploy to sell products. BIG cosmetic companies sell products containing the toxic chemicals like carcinogens, endocrine disruptors, etc. that are known to cause breast cancer, as well as many other diseases. These companies are sponsors for "Walk For The Cure" and need to “Walk their Talk” and encourage prevention, says Vicki.
In 2011, pinkwashing reached a new low with Promise Me, a perfume commissioned by Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Promise Me contains unlisted chemicals that are regulated as toxic and hazardous, have not been adequately evaluated for human safety, and have demonstrated negative health effects.
What should we be aware of before we shell out our money and think pink?
Vicki Saputo is a registered nurse, actress, model. Vicki is affectionately known as “Nurse Vicki” on Prescriptions for Health radio and PRN.FM Internet radio, What’s New in the News in Medicine on TV and on www.doctorsaputo.com.
“… for what crime was she killed?” (Holy Qur’an, 81:9)
“…therefore choose life ... (Deut. 30:19)
Due to intense backlash by liberal, pro-abortion groups, Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation retracted its plans to discontinue funding of Planned Parenthood.
Chief Executive Nancy G. Brinker, said that the decision had nothing to do with the group's position on abortion, but rather a new policy, barring grants to groups under governmental investigations.
Not surprising, the reaction was swift and intense. Funding to PP increased dramatically, with NYC Mayor Bloomberg pledging $250K to the organization, implying that “politics” was behind Susan G. Komen’s decision.
Those who support Planned Parenthood argue that they provide essential services to women, with abortion being just one part.
Opponents on the other hand, speak to what is considered to be a hidden agenda to encourage the taking of sacred life, for mere convenience, under the mantra of “choice”.
While Planned Parenthood enjoys strong support amongst those who would tie it in to civil or women’s rights, what is not known by many, is its sinister origin, as far as 1916, by Margaret Sanger, who was a eugenicist and racist. Said she about black people, "they are…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
