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!! :)
