Billy Brimblecom | Steps of Faith Foundation

Billy_Brimblecom_SOF-minBilly Brimblecom
Executive Director, Steps of Faith Foundation

I was a full time musician and part time actor for most of my life. Now I'm a full time charity guy, full time dad and husband, and play music on occasion. Even though it was the worst thing in the world at the time, losing my leg to cancer in 2005 turned out to be one of the BEST things that ever happened to me. Now with Steps Of Faith, I get to help other amputees for a living, which is a huge blessing! I aim to be a connector- to connect with people who want to help further Steps of Faith's mission, and to connect amputees with the prosthetic care they need to get their freedom of mobility back. The creative energy I had as a musician and actor is now poured into how to make Steps Of Faith grow, and reach more people.
