Livestrong comparison to Susan G. Komen
Went to the Fatcyclist commenters recommended source :
searched for Livestrong.com & livestrong.org and then LAF and found the following :
The Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) believes that in the battle with cancer, unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything. Founded in 1997 by cancer survivor and champion cyclist, Lance Armstrong, the LAF inspires and empowers people with cancer. We provide the practical information and tools people with cancer need to live life on their own terms. We take aim at the gaps between what is known and what is done to prevent suffering and death due to cancer. We unite people to fight cancer and pursue an agenda focused on: prevention, access to screening and care, improvement of the quality of life for cancer survivors, and investment in research.

FROM the same site i checked out "Susan G. Komen "
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested more than $1.2 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

NO WAY i can compare these separate organisations but there are reports that LAF reduced their expense % in recent reports. Visibility makes it easier to encourage "Donations" even in adverse economic times.
Lance did an interview over the phone recently in preparation for the "Tour Down Under" , check it out after you read this item from CyclingNews Forum:
