ipsadixit:
According to data released by the foundation itself, Susan G Komen spent the bulk of its funds on “Public health education,” i.e. pinkifying cancer in 2009-2010. At the same time, only 5.6% is spent on actual treatment—less than what is spent on fund-raising and on administrative costs.  
In numbers this adds up to $75.4 million spent on research, $140.8 million on public health education, $46.9 million spent on health screening services, and $20.1 million on treatment. Fund raising and administrative costs added up to $36.1 million and $40.6 million, respectively.
As a sidenote, about a million dollars was spent on bullying other cancer organizations and charities out of using the term “cure” in their campaigns as seen here and here.

Kevin Drum writes:

This might disturb you at first, but remember: the free market is  always right, so clearly we’ve collectively made a rational choice here.  We’ve decided that although our healthcare costs are far higher than in  Europe, this is worth it in return for far higher death rates from  hospital infections.

USA!
