MY HOPE CHEST
June 29, 2011

There are numerous "pink ribbon" charities focusing on breast cancer awareness. But My Hope Chest is the only national non profit focusing solely on breast reconstruction for the uninsured breast cancer survivor. They provide the final step in breast cancer treatment.
There are thousands of women without insurance living without one or both of their breasts. My Hope Chest goal is to see that no woman has to.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I deal with the women who need their breasts back. I hear their stories. No woman should have to go without their breasts because they lack insurance.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hope that they can raise enough money to be sustainable. They are doing great things with just a volunteer staff. Imaging what could be done with a few paid employees!!!!

MY ROLE:
Board Member & Survivor, Volunteer, Patient Advocate.
