BUCKETS FULL OF SUPPORT
This year’s Busby Foundation Golf Tournament was overflowing with the gracious support of our sponsors, our golfers, and our volunteers. As golfers enjoyed camaraderie and competition, the real reason we all gathered was never forgotten. Each ball hit, each bid placed, and raffle ticket bought will help The Foundation further the education and support for families who have loved ones suffering from ALS.
Established in November 2001 by friends and colleagues of ALS victim Bo Busby, the Foundation provides financial support and assistance to Central Texas families battling ALS with gifts ranging from a few hundred to many thousands of dollars. Its financial support and continued empathy comforts patients and their families when the disease may overwhelm them with its ongoing demands and lifestyle changes. It is the little things that the Foundation is able to do that bring the greatest of things to the families in need…all across Central Texas.
On behalf of The Busby Foundation, we thank you for the buckets of support given at this year’s event.
Hope to see you next year…Fall 2018!
FROM THE 2017 AMBASSADOR
When you are faced with the greatest challenge of your life, it is pretty awe inspiring to find others who have been there and care. A retired teacher of 39 years, I was beginning the next chapter of my life with my new wife when ALS intervened. Within a short period of time, I was losing my mobility, speech, and confidence. Simple daily tasks were becoming more and more difficult and dangerous. The Busby Foundation Grant enabled me to remodel my bathroom so that it is safe and wheelchair accessible. I greatly appreciate their generosity and caring. My personal motto has always been, “Life is a beautiful struggle” and the Busby Foundation reinforces my belief. – E. Crew
