Each year, The Busted Foundation's event Bowling for Boobies® provides financial assistance to local women who are experiencing financial challenges as the result of fighting and living with breast cancer.
Even with insurance, too many people have to sell most or all of what they have worked a lifetime for in order to get the treatment needed. Adults experiencing cancer treatment do not need any added emotional stress.
There can be numerous expenses... unpaid medical bills, lost work time, housekeeping and childcare needs while struggling with chemotherapy effects, travel for out-of-town treatments, integrative treatments for side effects, and the cost of fighting and living with cancer.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
Bowling for Boobies® relieves the financial burdens of those women.
