A similar outfit (“Breast Cancer Society”) phoned me. I pretended I thought they were calling to offer ME financial assistance. “Why this wonderful!” I told the caller. “I have so many treatment related bills. God bless you!”

So who else keeps getting calls from a charity called Breast Cancer Survivors Foundation out of Roselle Park, NJ?

They have an outfit making charitable solicitation calls called “Outreach Calling” that may have a website HERE but I was told by the supervisor of friendly Ann Marie who called me today (his name was Jeff) that they were located in NJ – he gave me a number to them of 973-999-6091 )

    • Dear Suzanne – as a survivor after multiple calls I could not help but throw a FOIA on the state of NJ and write that post.

      Dear KatherineMBC – I am really flattered you reblogged my post. Know that I was interviewed recently by a reporter from North Jersey named Walt Kane. About this post.

      Thanks

    Thanks Suzanne–I know you are a “real” philanthropist for people with breast cancer and many other areas. I really enjoyed hearing about how your work with those high school kids. You’re the best!

    So, is Breast Cancer Survivors Fdn, Inc. a reputable cause? I cannot locate any rating or advice on them.

  4. I am fortunate enough to be a two-time survivor of breast cancer, and got through treatments physically and financially. My heart goes out to those less fortunate, but I read the information that came with the pledge materials and my suspicions were raised.
