Within the last few years I’ve seen cancer of different types strike people all around me, including a couple of MidWeek / Honolulu Star-Bulletin employees. Keeping that in mind, I know there are multiple ways to contribute to the fight against cancer, but here are a few gadgets that you won’t feel guilty about purchasing, and they directly benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation:

The Electric Pink inno is the first device to offer MP3 playback combined with XM Satellite Radio programming.

It’s another good addition to your purse since it features a fully portable satellite receiver with a built-in antenna - then you too can say, “I have a satellite receiver in my purse!” It also has 1GB of flash memory to store up to 50 hours of your files and XM programming.

Also note that this little beauty won CNET’s “Best of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2006, People’s Voice Award” because of its revolutionary portable, handheld features that combine MP3 music and satellite radio.

The Special Edition Pink Pioneer inno will cost you about $300, and it needs to be purchased from either Circuit City ( or XM Radio ( to make a difference.

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was founded on a promise made between two sisters - Susan Goodman Komen and Nancy Goodman Brinker. Suzy was diagnosed with breast cancer, and before she died at the age of 36, she asked her sister Nancy to do everything possible to bring an end to breast cancer. Nancy kept her promise and established the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982. Visit for more information.
