Komen et al...

Livestrong.org (Lance Armstrong's foundation) covers all the bases.

As for Komen, when you come down to it, Planned Parenthood's mission does not coincide with Komen's. There is nothing that PP offers that women can't get elsewhere with respect to referrals to mammograms. PP does not actually perform mammograms, so not sure why one non profit should fund another who's mission doesn't match... politics aside.
People scream about access to healthcare, but interestingly, a person can self refer for a mammogram. It's the only radiology exam one can self refer, and be directly reported back to by the radiologist without having to go through a primary care physician. No one mentions that though. Must have something to do with mammography also being the only radiologic modality to be federally regulated. :D
