About My Hope Chest:
“Established in 2003, My Hope Chest is the only national 501c3 not-for-profit funding breast reconstruction for uninsured and underinsured survivors program. Referrals come to the organization from the biggest breast cancer charities in the United States like the Susan G. Komen Foundation and the American Cancer Society. Both organizations support the My Hope Chestmission. We are moved to ACT and our goal is to heal and provide closure to the breast cancer journey. By enabling those who desire reconstruction to have it, My Hope Chest works to help all survivors return to a “new” normal with feelings of hope, self-worth and completeness. Research, education and awareness are covered by dozens of organizations in the United States. Since the charity began, it has been a focus to help every woman who desires reconstruction the ability to have it. As a Grassroots organization, we have more people to help than we have funding.
When we provide a surgery that ranges from $25,000 to $200,000 at a cash pay rate,* we say we create a butterfly and transform a life *(we negotiate rates much lower and the average surgery can be from $3,000 to $10,000).”
