Busted Foundation makes a difference in women's lives. Just read the stories of the women who have received help from the money raised by the Bowling for Boobies events! I give every year because getting breast cancer is one of the most devastating events of a woman's life. I know. My mother had breast cancer twice. I experienced second-hand her turmoil. And I have had friends since then who have suffered from this terrible disease, including Edith who founded this organization. Having been disabled myself, I know that having money to pay for both medical and personal expenses makes all the difference in the world to recovery. So, I will keep giving and I look forward to the ever-increasing impact my gifts have for those in need. And who knows? Maybe someday I will need it myself.

I spent many years doing biomedical research in laboratories. I am all in favor of tax dollars and charitable donations going to further our understanding of the science of cancer.

However, for me personally there's a better and more effective way of stamping out cancer and its horrible erosion of our loved ones' lives: direct action. In this case, direct action against the breast cancer that attacked my mom, my former boss, and my boss' boss — direct action in the form of helping women with a breast cancer diagnosis be strong, be brave, and not be distracted by financial considerations.

You could put that $5 in a jar at the convenience store, or you could give twice that, or five times that, or whatever you can afford, to directly help someone who will be hand-selected by the Busted Foundation board as someone whose life will be changed by your donation pooled with those of others. If you think long and hard about it, it's really the best "bang for your buck" in fighting breast cancer.

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

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.

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!

Such a worthy cause since all the donations go directly to women living with Breast Cancer. Found out this non-profit is all volunteers and donations based so 100% of the money goes to the recipients of the cancer patients.

The organizers of this non-profit truly put their blood, sweat and tears into this. It truly shows how genuinely passionate they are about helping women with breast cancer. Its never forgotten why everyone is working so hard to raise each and every dollar.

I find it totally amazing all the people who took time out of their busy lives to help with such a worthy cause. I only wish that i could do more financially to help.There is a huge need for charities like this because as a cancer survivor myself the hardest thing to do is take care of expense that accumilate during an illness such as canver, Insurance does not cover family expense when you cant work. I wish i could have attended the bowling tournement but i could not however seeing the pix of the event shows me that people generally have compassion for others no matter what the times are. so thank you for all who took part in this on behalf of people battling this disease. Bless you all and thanks

Sponsored a team for the event and have supported this charity for several years. They are helping to pay the expenses of women with Breast Cancer who don't have insurance or policies that don't cover all the expenses. Amazing work being done and so much of the money raised is being put to the use it is raised for!

I donated money to this worth-while group. They raise funds for breast cancer. As someone experienced with non-profit groups, I whole-heartedly endorse this group and strongly recommend that anyone considering them for monies go ahead and donate! The money is used appropriately. I support their efforts without reservation, question, hesitation, or pause.
