Tell Us Your Hope Chest Story

Betty
Donor
A couple of gentlemen from Hope Chest came to my house to pick up a dining table set that I was donating to Hope Chest. They were so pleasant and accommodating! So often you don't hear of any services unless they negative, but these two gentlemen were very accommodating and very polite! Thank you so very much, I appreciated the help!
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.
