This charity not only helps people with breast cancer, but it helps provide hope for people who are just getting diagnosed and for the supporters of those diagnosed. Anyone who has ever been without health insurance knows how hard it is to get treatment for the most mundane things...with breast cancer, imagine that emplified by thousands of dollars PLUS the reality that if you don't get care (and pay the bill) you die. There are plenty of programs in CA that help you get the mamogram to get diagnosed--but after? You have no insurance and you can't GET insurance. This charity ensures that you can pay your bills beyond the free mamogram. That you can get treatment, and with help from Busted Foundation--an actual future beyond the bill. I'm one of the lucky ones. I have insurance...but there have been plenty of times I was without, inbetween jobs or just on my own. I fully support this organization.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I personally knew someone in Los Angeles that benfited from a scholarship in the first year of the charity's 501 (3)c. It changed her life.
