As the Executive Director of the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (BCFO), Crystal Webster’s definition of beauty has widened beyond the traditional textbook definition. Every day, Crystal works with women struggling to beat breast cancer. She’s seen women young and old (her own sister was diagnosed with cancer at just 29) seek financial assistance from BCFO, which helps cover everyday expenses of life so women can focus on survival. As a result, Crystal, more than most, appreciates her own healthy body and knows how giving back to the community and leading a healthy lifestyle can blend to create a beauty inside and out.
“As we grow older, our views on beauty tend to mature,” she says. “It becomes less about hairstyles and makeup and more about a positive attitude and living a connected and engaged life.” Crystal herself made a bold leap several years ago after deciding that her decade-long career in restaurant management wasn’t rewarding enough. In 2006, she went back to school and got a masters degree in health care administration. “I wanted to do something more significant that would help people,” Webster says. “BCFO has been a logical extension of my goal to contribute to improving our community.”
One of the biggest accomplishments on Crystal’s list is expanding BCFO’s mammography program. In 2007 there were just two mammography contracts, both in Springfield. Now there are 13 facilities around 417-land that offer free mammograms through BCFO.
