  • 7. My Opinion
    • After reviewing both of the websites in detail, I feel that I would use the National Breast Cancer Foundation website for the fact that it seems to be more thorough than the Susan G. Komen website, as far as facts and information. The Komen website focuses more on raising awareness for breast cancer rather than information on the diagnosis, treatment, and research of it. I also felt that the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s founder was more reputable than the other, because she is on several medical boards, rather than just being a cancer survivor. Both websites were very useful but I would could with the Cancer Foundation.
