I was first introduced to this charity by Sean Decker and brought on as a team member for the group's #1 Charity Event, Bowling for Boobies. Having met Stefanie LaHart, the founder/CEO, I was overcome by her enthusiam and passion for this charity. It is clear she is the driving force behind the group's desire to reach out and help local women who are hurting. Cancer is a crippling disease that touches us all in some way. Over the last few years, I’ve known close friends who’ve fought the cancer battle, and although survived – they live in constant fear that it’ll return. Cancer is an immense struggle; physically, emotionally, and financially. Those diagnosed, and fighting are some of the strongest people I know and they simply touch my heart. For me, seeing the outreach that BUSTED provides to the local LA community - nothing in life is more important than giving back, and if I can be part of something like the BUSTED FOUNDATION that helps bring joy or a moment of repreieve to just one woman’s battle with this disease, then I feel I’ve accomplished at least a little of my purpose in life. BUSTED is a wonderful, loving, caring, and organized Charity. I am so happy to be a part of something like this, and with th driving force of Stefanie LaHart at the helm.

Busted Foundation is amazing because I have witnessed them change lives. It is just incredible to hear the stories from people who have been directly affected by cancer, and how Busted helped them. It also matters greatly to me that this is a smaller and local charity since it allows them to be more agile and efficient. Bottom line: Busted Foundation is an organization that is making a difference, one person at a time.

I found out about this wonderful charity through Stefanie LaHart, Busted Foundation's founder and CEO. She was my downstairs neighbor when I lived in LA! I had never been privy to the inner workings of a nonprofit before - how much work goes into it, how many people are involved, how many lives you can touch in even the smallest way. I started to see some of the "Thank You" notes that were coming in around 2010 and was truly moved. I had never really stopped to think about just how much cancer can affect your life, your family's life. Obviously we are all aware how expensive treatment can be and how much red tape is unfortunately involved with insurance companies, but when I started to read letters thanking the Busted Foundation for affording them the opportunity to buy school supplies for their children, or groceries, or to pay rent - I was hooked. I was ready to work with the Foundation and Stefanie any way I could. Stefanie is an absolute angel. She is always looking for new creative ways to get people involved and to raise awareness and money for others in need. She is, hands down, the most selfless person I know. She really cares, is incredibly supportive, and is a real-life superwoman! I haven't lived in LA for almost two years now, but still keep in close touch with her and the Foundation and am sure to make it back every year for the annual Bowling for Boobies event! Best non-profit ever!! :)

Busted Foundation is one of the few grass roots foundations with a campaign that not only promises big, important wins for women with Breast Cancer, but follows through 200%. Yes, they are small. Yes, they have help from volunteers, but the amount of work put in to launching the foundation and continuing to make it a success not only stands up to community expectations, but exceeds them, and sets the goal higher for other organizations fighting breast cancer. This foundation was started to help a community member, Edith, with her mounting breast cancer bills after a stage four diagnosis with no insurance or resource to turn to either pay for treatment, or the mounting bills post (free) mammogram. California is wonderful for getting you a free mammogram--but how do you get treatment and pay your bills without insurance, when the diagnosis itself makes you untouchable? The community, with the help of Busted Founder Stefanie LaHart, raised that money, and her bills were paid. Year after year, more women in the community were in the same boat, and Busted Foundation was born. They make fundraising fun with their annual events, Bowling For Boobies, with achievable goals for community members joining the fight. Because the foundation awards scholarships to applicants in need that pay *all* bills--not just medical ones--Lives were saved, and in some cases, homes were saved. Electricity and water was not shut off. Rent was paid. The doctor healing them was paid. The support for this foundation is overwhelming, and they get it right. I have met the women Busted has helped--and they could not have made it through the heavy weight of cancer treatment, nor the expense, without them. I look forward to seeing them continue to do some of the best work associated with women diagnosed with breast cancer--directly helping the women suffering from the disease. No smoke and mirrors--Busted Foundation is the real deal.

I work with the Busted foundation. This is a great organization because it is different than any other. I know we need cancer research money and educational money, but mean while the patients fighting this cancer are going broke. To be able to raise money for a foundation that directly gives money to qualifying patients to help with the burden of medical bills is very gratfying. The receipants are so thankful and gratious it is heartwarming

This was my first year working with the Busted Foundation and it was amazing! I have worked with many non-profits before, but Busted brought the volunteer experience to a whole new level. Not only is the organization amazingly organized and creative in the way that they raise their money, but the money goes directly to women affected by Breast Cancer. It was this personal feel that made working with Busted such an honor and a pleasure. I actually felt like I was really affecting the lives of women across the country. I will absolutely work with them again.

I have participated in Bowling for Boobies for four years with a competing team. I was awestruck and humbled with the first experience, which is why I keep returning. Making a difference in women's lives right here in Los Angeles is an unmatched experience. Knowing that this isn't a giant organization where money mostly goes to administrative costs makes it even better. I always leave every year feeling like I did something meaningful for women. It's the gift of dignity in a very horrible time. It's love. And that is why I will keep going back. One day, that woman might be me.

Having worked with multiple non profits over 15 years that range in variety of services provided and issues and causes advocated for, I can honestly say I'm impressed with the Busted Foundation on a regular basis. Very rarely do you see a non profit that can actually directly and positively impact an individual's life the way Busted does. The grant recipients who write in to request funds and/or send a thank you for funds received tell you immediately that you're making an important difference in their life. The people who work to make Busted succeed are extremely dedicated and are looking to grow and evolve this organization to serve and provide funds for more women than ever before - until there's a cure for breast cancer, diagnosis will continue and a unique and direct services organization like Busted will need to thrive in order to continue to support these women. As well, this is an all-volunteer organization that proves what a few dedicated individuals can accomplish when they care deeply about an issue and making a positive impact in someone's life. Busted needs and deserves even more support so they can achieve and exceed their mission. Kudos to Busted and the whole team for all they've done so far and good luck to them in the future!

When I first heard about the Busted Foundation & the Bowling for Boobies event a few years ago, I knew that I would want to be involved in helping this worthy cause. This year I was lucky enough to be able to contribute my time, and I was moved to see how many people are eager to dedicate their time, money & efforts to this noble cause. It is clear this organization changes people's lives, and the satisfaction of being a part of that is hard to match.

In 2004 a very special and dear soul, now no longer with us began this fun and "pay it forward" charity - bowling event called "Bowling for Boobies". Busted Foundation serves two purposes for me . . . one is the continuation of helping those in financial hardship relating to the insanity of our messed up healthcare system. No one should be driven into bankruptcy simply from suffering with breast cancer. Secondly, the Bowling event gives me the feeling as if we are together again having fun and volunteering for the cause. *One final note - a huge congratulations to Stefanie LaHart who stepped up to the role of Busted Foundation, CEO - Stefanie has brought the organization to a new level. Many good karma's to Stefanie!
