Breastless in America?

My Hope Chest is Creating Butterflies ~ Making Women Whole Again

My Hope Chest was founded by breast cacner survivor Alisa Savoretti in the fall of 2003.  It is a national grassroots organization and the ONLY national charity funding breast reconstruction for uninsured and underinsured breast cancer survivors.

History....

A breast cancer survivor and Las Vegas Showgirl, she was 38 and without insurance at the time of her diagnosis. Following a mastectomy and only 5 months after finishing her chemotherapy, Alisa returned to the Las Vegas stage and her career as a professional dancer – this time however, minus one breast.

Billing herself as the “Lop-sided Showgirl”, Alisa shared her personal story and plans for an organization as a result of it, gaining media attention through a news story on the local CBS affiliate.  Alisa had to wait nearly 3 years to acquire her own reconstruction.  She realized then that there is a  huge gap in treatment that existed for “uninsured” women suffering from a mastectomy.

What is Reconstruction?
Breast Reconstruction is NOT a "boob Job."   It's a Series of 3 surgeries, spanning one year with a cash pay cost to uninsured women ranging from $25,000 and up to $200,000 for complicated FLAP surgeries.

Creating Butterflies ~ Transforming Lives

My Hope Chest's unique mission is on the back end of the disease... the HAPPY part, where women are made whole in body, mind and spirit. Your donation will help us change lives and help survivors find closure from their cancer journey. Every Dollar matters.  It takes a village.

Thank you for caring ;-)
