Reuters gains rare access into the world of fundraising for these charitable-sounding political action committees, a tiny but profitable niche in the U. Filed Jan. Even as they charmed millions from credulous donors, a dozen former callers for two major fundraisers told Reuters that they knew their companies would be keeping the vast majority of it. Instead, the bulk of the money is kept by fundraising firms or the people running the PACs.
Beyond moral support and hands-on assistance, the one thing that people with breast cancer often need is help with the cost of breast cancer treatment. Even if a loved one is well-insured, the out-of-pocket expenses after deductibles , copayments , and coinsurance can quickly amount to thousands of dollars. For those without insurance, covering the costs can be next to impossible without help from others. Charitable fundraising is one such way to help. Nor does it reflect the cost of ongoing care or the expense of treating advanced metastatic breast cancer. If you decide to step forward to help by fundraising for a loved one's cancer treatment, there are a number of short- and long-term solutions that can raise money effectively and legally.
