San Francisco: Robert Goldberg's Op-Ed, "End sick crusade against breast cancer research" (Oct. 29), was full of factual errors. It also mischaracterized Breast Cancer Action and our 16 years of supporting the voices of those affected by the disease. We encourage pink-ribbon consumers to get informed, provide women with the facts so they can make informed choices about their health and organize people to do something about breast cancer besides worry. We also call for research to focus on key unanswered questions about breast cancer. We value transparency and are highly regarded in the cancer world, Goldberg's diatribe notwithstanding.
