Sandra'Hope Foundation has been a very good organization to the community. Not only have they come together to help breast cancers survivors and their families in their difficult time but they have also brought so many people together for an amazing cause. They continue to do things throughout the year which my favorite event has been their Volleyball tournament. This event is very big and so many sponsors and people come together to make it a success year after year. I am pleased to have been able to be involved in these events so far and look forward to continuing to volunteer my support.

So many amazing things to say about Sandra’s Hope Foundation. I have been a part of this organization since the beginning and it has been such a humbling experience. This non profit truly cares for those in need. They support breast cancer families with open arms to offer love, encouragement & hope as well as assist with financial assistance. SHF serves the local community in so many wonderful ways: scholarship awards, back to school giveaways, Pink Christmas-holiday dinners & handmade chemo care baskets. It is a blessing to be able to make an impact in our community, help families and to be able to support other sister charities. It’s an honor to be surrounded by so many passionate, selfless and kind volunteers. We will continue to carry on our values & mission to help everyone that has been touched by breast cancer. I hope the community understands how important it is to honor and support this fabulous organization.

The Sandra's Hope Foundation is an extraordinary non-profit organization that serves its community. I am proud and fortunate enough to say that I have been part of this great non-profit organization along with his passionate member since its inception. The Sandra Hope Foundation members, who are compassionate, selflessly give to the people and their loved ones in our community that are dealing with this horrid disease. Another great feature of the SHF is at all proceeds raised go back to our local communty fighters and survivors providing the help and support that they may desperately need. Though its many events and fundraisers, Sandra's Hope Foundation brings breast cancer awareness, educates and possibly most importantly reminds our fighters and survivors that they are still as beautiful as ever and that they are not alone.

I have been a volunteer since inception and absolutely love this foundation and what they do. I stand by their mission to help those who have been affected by breast cancer in our community. I have seen first hand how this foundation has impacted many individuals and their families. Scholarship awards, holiday dinners, chemo care packages are just a few things that the foundation physically provides. In addition I have gained friendship, comradery, and breast cancer fighters and survivors have gained sisterhood. I love this foundation!

I've been volunteering for this organization for about 8 years. I love the organization's mission and the way they give directly to those that are fighting breast cancer. I look forward to their Pink Christmas where my sister and I help make no sew blankets to gift those that are going through treatment during the holidays.

Sandras Hope Foundation is a great organization that strives to find numerous ways to give back to its community. Throughout the year members of this foundation come together in hosting a variety of events to support a number of families spiritually and most importantly, financially. I will continue to volunteer my time when possible for this great cause, which includes fighting the battle of breast cancer and helping bring awareness to our community.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2019. Needless to say, I have been on an emotional journey during these last few months. Medical bills are piling up, but fortunately, Sandra's Hope Foundation stepped in and has helped to relieve my financial burden! I am hopeful to be able to give back in the future to such an incredible foundation of support! Feeling very blessed at this time.

This organization of incredible women
Has provided emotional, physical and financial assistance to breast cancer survivors like myself. They have been there for me since my metastatic journey began, which is around the time they started this foundation. They do Hope on the Runway where the breast Cancer survivors are the models. They get us dressed and glammed up to be so beautiful for the night. They also have fundraisers to help raise money for them to help the survivors. They go above and beyond to provide us what we need at our time of need. They will always have a place in my heart!

The Sandra’s Hope Foundation has been such a blessing to me and my family in so many ways. As fighters, our fight is not just against the disease. The fight is for time and quality of life. SHF has assisted myself and so many other breast cancer fighters financially and emotionally during the toughest time in many lives. This organization and each of its members displays the utmost kindness, selflessness and dedication as they strive to help improve the lives of the women/men and their families battling this horrible disease. I can not say thank you enough.

SHF is a great non-profit that has helped many women in the community in more than one way. Events they host has created bonds between survivors and allowed those going thru hardship to connect and provide support for one another. Not only have they helped survivors or fighters, but the families as well. They provide gift cards during back to school and turkey dinners for the family. If you know someone who's been affected, please tell them about Sandra's Hope Foundation.

I’m honored and blessed to serve along side with passionate board members and volunteers. Never did we think our small fundraising group would grow into the nonprofit organization it is today. It's truly amazing to see the impact that SHF has made in our community. Not only are we a financial resource, but we work with other nonprofits to provide emotional support to those who are starting their breast cancer journey. We are truly blessed to be a blessing to others.

Working in the breast care industry for the last 13 years it’s nice to to know there is another resource for those who need it. Sandra’s Hope Foundation brings the community together for fun events all while giving valuable breast cancer awareness information.

I am a breast cancer survivor & have been associated with Sandras Hope Foundation (SHF) since 2015 when I participated, as a model, in their annual Hope on The Runway Fashion Show fundraiser. I expected the fashion show to be a once in a lifetime experience; however, did not realize it would be the start of something wonderful. It was the beginning of a bond with an incredible group of women and men from SHF as well as fellow models (pink sisters) which has grown stronger over the years. SHF has given financial aid to fellow pink sisters when they found themselves in dire straits . Sometimes tests or treatment is necessary & there is no time to "wait" for funds or better circumstances. SFH focus is on assisting the community of women (& men) effected by breast cancer. One of their biggest outreach projects takes place during the holiday season when Foundation members & volunteers gather to create "Chemo Care Baskets' which are gifted, along with a complete Turkey dinner, to a breast cancer patient undergoing treatment. A dear friend of mine who had been diagnosed & widowed within weeks of each other was the recipient of such a care basket. I was grateful that SHF was there to provide this blessing to her in such a difficult time. Fundraisers such as Volleyball Tournaments and mixers are done in a professional and fun way. Everyone at SHF treats you as if you are family. They are sincere about "loving you through it".. the journey with breast cancer. They have been there for me, & fellow survivors, in the best & worst of times. We celebrate life in good times at the annual Hope on The Runway Fashion show. We celebrate as we hear a survivor is now in remission. We celebrate being part of a community who comes together & supports those in need during the holiday season. The ladies and gents of SHF join their community of survivors to pray and support those who receive news that they are going to battle cancer for the 2nd time..a recurrence. And there have been the worst of times, when far too many of our pink sisters have passed away. SHF was there for my dear friend , also a former model, when they treated both she and her mother to a special day of pampering . There were no lights or cameras, just friends (several survivors) and the ladies of SHF to bring love and light to the darkest of times. Our pink sister passed away a couple of weeks later. So we, the community of survivors supported by SHF and the ladies and gentlemen who have supported us have laughed, cried & grieved together. It's 2019 & unfortunately women (& men) are still being diagnosed with breast cancer. I am grateful that Sandra's Hope Foundation is active in our community & there to offer HOPE to those diagnosed. Support comes in so many ways.. whether it be financial, emotional, learning about better nutrition & wellness or just creating a support system for those like me who are still navigating their way through life as a breast cancer survivor/thrivor. I believe the compassionate & driven individuals of SHF are even more determined than ever to bring awareness to our community about breast cancer. I am humbled & honored to be associated with this Foundation & look forward to all the great things they WILL do in the future because "No One Fights Alone" !

I can’t say enough about SHF, formerly known as Fabooblicious. I have watched us grow from a small fundraiser to a exceptional non profit and it’s joyful to see that we have kept the same values and vision as we have had in the beginning. The selfless dedication and passion the president, board and team members have, demonstrates the love we have for this cause and proves our good standing as a reputable and credible not-for-profit foundation. It is important for our community to have us, as we are committed to assist and advise those who have been touched by breast cancer.
