Just remember that supporting the pink ribbon people, while not necessarily bad, has unintended consequences (like supporting Planned Parenthood), and they ignore most cancers, focusing on breast cancer only. While I have great sympathy for anyone battling breast cancer, it is not the only cancer affecting the world.
I would rather see everyone helping people directly rather than supporting the corporations collecting money from the people and families who have loved ones battling this devastating disease.
Cancer didn't take my life but it ruined me financially. 6 years later I have finally "recovered" from the financial disaster caused by cancer. But I know I am a lucky one, someone with a good job (although my so called insurance paid $0 towards my cancer treatments).
Instead of sending money to the cancer corporations, take your monthly donation to the pink ribbon or yellow wrist band people and make a real difference and find someone you know, someone in your family, or someone in your community who could use the money directly.
You may not get the tax deduction, but you will do more real good.
