WHAT’S IT ALL FOR?
The Busby Foundation was established in November 2001 by friends and colleagues to honor the courageous life and legacy of former ALS victim, Bo Busby. The Foundation provides financial support and assistance to Central Texas families who are facing the challenges of a loved one with ALS. Our financial support and continued empathy comforts patients and their families when the disease may overwhelm them with its ongoing demands and lifestyle changes.
Since its inception, The Busby Foundation has assisted many patients and their families in Central Texas. With your support, we have helped Central Texas families by
- Providing financial “gap” assistance until federal agencies’ aid begins.
- Directing families on available resources to assist them during these challenging times.
- Constructing wheelchair and incorporating handicap access features into their home.
- Assisting with home healthcare and nursing aid.
- Supplying transportation vouchers to help with hospital visits.
- Donating services to help families secure wheelchairs, breathing equipment, stair lifts and other mobility devices.
- Making lasting, lifetime memories through our Memories Programming.
- Supporting families with ALS and their children’s education through the Educational Gifting Program.
After 16 years strong, the Lonestar Crawfish Festival is just one way in which funds are raised to continue the Foundation’s mission. Read more at www.BusbyALS.org.
WE THANK OUR MANY STARS
It may be the “LONESTAR” Crawfish Festival, but we are by far NOT ALONE in the battle against ALS. There are MANY stars who continue to support The Busby Foundation’s mission, and at the 16th Annual Festival there were no exceptions! After 16 successful years, they continue to shine bright as sponsors, volunteers, staff, board members, performers, ambassadors, and event attendees.
We are grateful for each and every one of you who have participated at this year’s event and in and years past. With your support, we continue to spread awareness and help more Central Texas families battling ALS.
