On June 20th, Shawn R from Florida will be undergoing the 2nd step of her 3 step process of breast reconstructive surgery and transformation on her way to closure with Dr. Antonio Gayoso in St. Petersburg. Women who apply to My Hope Chest for help have often overcome more than just a cancer diagnosis by the time they reach our charity… they have survived the loss of limb, often loss of job and in the worst cases, and they do happen, loss of home and husband. Surgery day is an amazing moment in our client’s life when she feels that much closer to closing the chapter of the cancer journey. That’s our mission .. to help women be finished with thinking about cancer and on to moving forward with their lives.
A few words from Shawn:
I have been blessed to have found My Hope Chest. If it weren't for their organization and Dr. Gayoso, I would not have been able to begin to put my breast cancer behind me. I had no hope of financially being able to afford reconstruction surgery any time soon. You just want to feel like your old self. And this phase is one of the most important steps.
When someone can be there at your lowest point, and help you rebuild.. Out of the kindness of their hearts.. To help me piece myself back to whole again I can't say enough..
Please help and donate anything.. It all adds up to help one more woman like me, get through one of the scariest and most stressful times in their lives.
Pay it forward...
