The Busby Foundation Helps Austin's ALS Families When They Need It Most

ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease, is one of the most unkind maladies known to man - the victim slowly loses control of his or her muscles, leading almost always inevitably to death - and watching a loved one go through such an end must be one of the worst things that could ever happen to a family.

A Texan by the name of Bo Busby faced ALS back in the early 2000's with such courage and dignity that his friends were inspired to follow in his footsteps - thus, the Busby Foundation does great work in supporting local families who are going through this tragic process, now for 13 years.

One of the few things we can hope for in this life is to leave a positive mark on the world - for some good to continue after we're gone - and in that regard, Bo Busby was a complete success. The Busby Foundation's annual Lone Star Crawfish Boil fundraiser happens on Saturday night (4/22) at Stubb's, and you can learn more about their work and support it HERE. A conversation with co-president Hunter Lankford, below.
