Midway through National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our 2012 Cone Communications Breast Cancer Trend Tracker reveals consumers are becoming skeptical about the intents and impacts of breast cancer cause marketing campaigns.

The Trend Tracker shows three-quarters (77%) of Americans believe some companies support the cause solely for corporate gain.
