Board of Directors and Staff
I serve on the Foundation Board because it is local and an immediate way for breast cancer patients to receive financial as well as nutritional help while in treatment without a ton of red tape. I lost my favorite Aunt to the disease and have many friends that are survivors. It is in their honor that I continue to serve the organization.
President & CEO - Discover St. Louis Park
For me the mission of the Hope Chest - to be there to help with immediate needs when people are struggling in the biggest of ways - is so uplifting. More than the financial help, it’s the message of caring and compassion, that I love being part of.
I’m excited by the dynamic vision and assertive growth plans of this Board and look forward to assisting. Personally, my life has been greatly impacted by cancer. I am so thankful that my family had the financial capacity to handle the medical and personal costs of cancer. Now I’d like to ease those financial burdens of others not as blessed.
Retired, Faegre Baker Daniels
As a breast cancer survivor, I understand the challenges that accompany this disease. The Foundation helps to ease the additional burdens and challenges that face breast cancer patients who are also experiencing financial difficulties. I love that our funds are spent locally to address the most urgent needs of breast cancer patients.
Principal - CliftonLarsonAllen
There are many things I love about serving on the board. Volunteering for a Foundation that serves patients right here in the Twin Cities is such a direct, tangible impact. I learn so much from collaborating with a board committed to the success and growth of the our mission. A can-do spirit permeates the Foundation Board which I find electric and uplifting.
Founder Visionary - Hope Chest for Breast Cancer
I was motivated by my two sisters’ fight-against and loss-to breast cancer. My dedication to the work of the Hope Chest has increased with every breast cancer story I have heard, every family I have met, every shopper in the store, every donor of merchandise and money. The need is great and I am honored to be part of the solution.
President, Commonwealth Properties
When I met Barbara, in 2004 she had a big dream. I was immediately drawn to her passion and drive, and inspired by her ability to turn heartbreak into progress. I got invovled right away. In a twist of fate, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Helping families through their most difficult journey is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
CEO - Five Star Professional
I serve on the Hope Chest for Breast Cancer Foundation Board because for many of the women who have breast cancer the disease is not their biggest problem. My wife and I saw these women when she was going through her breast cancer treatment, and that’s the people we help.
