Letter: Donate directly to favorite cancer charity

The U.S. has done a phenomenal job of making us aware of breast cancer by using the color pink. It all started with a simple pink ribbon.

However, I think it's time for a change. We now see products from A to Z painted pink with the promise that a portion of the proceeds will go to breast cancer research. What if we return to the pink ribbon and donate directly to our favorite breast cancer research group? This could be our local cancer center or a national group. Can you imagine how much money would be raised?
