Emergency Assistance Grants

Emergency Assistance Grants

Since 2001, Hope Chest has distributed over 4,000 grants to breast cancer patients and their families. Each grant represents hope and relief, two elements that are crucial in the fight against cancer. Hope Chest grants have paid rent and mortgages. They’ve covered day care costs, car payments, and utility bills. They deliver nutritious food.

We hope that someday our services aren’t needed, because there will be a cure. Until then, we are here to help ease the daily burdens of breast cancer treatment.

If you are not being treated at one of our partner facilities below, please:

Do I qualify?
  • To be eligible to receive emergency assistance funds from Hope Chest, you must live in Minnesota and be currently in treatment for breast cancer. Ask your Nurse Navigator or Social Worker for more information if you are already getting treatment at one of our partner facilities: 
Meals that Heal

Hope Chest for Breast Cancer has partnered with Open Arms Minnesota to offer delicious Hope Chest Meals that Heal to patients, their families, and their caregivers to ensure that the patient receives the essential nourishment a body needs during breast cancer treatment.

Tell Us Your Hope Chest History

Judy
Benefit Recipient
The support has been overwhelming from the gals at Hope Chest. I participated in my first ever Fillies Race for Hope, and it was everything I imagined.

Now it is time for me to thank God for the opportunity that I can help give back and support Hope Chest. I want to be involved as much as I can!
Jessica
Benefit Recipient
The Hope Chest was my shining light in the deep, dark hole of medical bills. People I didn't know reached out to me and generously gave prayers, support, and gifts.
Debra
Benefit Recipient
Attending Fillies Race for Hope gave me the strength and courage, to face my fear of the surgery and my new life.

On August 10, 2015, I had a bilateral mastectomy and started a new journey in life. I will continue to support Hope Chest for Breast Cancer because it has supported me.
