Making A Difference

Lifting The Burden

Every other minute in this country, a person hears the devastating words: “You have breast cancer.” By the time you finish reading this page, another family will be irrevocably affected. The time and costs associated with medical care are just the beginning - we’re here to help with everything else. No one should be left homeless or financially devastated by this terrible disease. We can’t fix everything, but together we can fix this.

We’re here…
…because the need is real
  • Two-thirds of the total costs of breast cancer treatment are non-medical.
  • Cancer patients are more than 2.5 times more likely to go bankrupt than people without cancer.
  • Women undergoing treatment for breast cancer have to miss an average of 44.5 days of work.
…because life won’t wait
  • The rent or mortgage still needs to be paid
  • The utility bills are still due on time
  • Someone still needs to buy groceries
…because insurance doesn’t cover everything, like:
  • Travel costs associated with seeking treatment
  • Cost of childcare while you're in treatment
  • Lost wages
How will your donation make a difference?

$25 pays for cab fare to and from treatment

$60 provides a week of meals, and much needed nutrition, to a patient

$100 keeps the heat on in their home for a month

$250 provides a week of nutritious meals for a patient, their children and their caretaker

$500 takes care of someone's utilities for six weeks of treatment

$1000 could pay the rent and keep the patient in their own home

Tell Us Your Hope Chest Story

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.
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!
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!
