Nonprofit Cancer Funding Shows Signs of Inequality
Breast cancer, leukemia, lymphoma and pediatric cancers were found to be well-funded.
Perhaps the best argument against philanthropy is that funding tends to go to causes and orgs that win the popularity contest (and to geographies that have a high concentration of the wealthy). Government would spread the resources more equitably.

Need. More. Funding. Collectively these cancers comprise >200k+ new cases each year. “Brain, lung, gastrointestinal and gynecologic cancers were poorly funded in all three metrics.”
