Tune in to be inspired by the founder of My Hope Chest and learn more about this amazing charity's mission to assist survivors of breast cancer who are unable to afford breast reconstruction surgery.  My Hope Chest is participating in the Safety Harbor Downtown Business Alliance, Inc. Charity Fundraising Challenge to raise awareness and funding for their mission to help women across the country.   #TakeTheChallenge & Support Worthy Charities! 

My Hope Chest was founded by Alisa Savoretti in the fall of 2003. A breast cancer survivor and Las Vegas Showgirl, she was 38 and without insurance at the time of her diagnosis. Following a mastectomy and only5 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.  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. 

Our experience shows that most advocates and donors to “breast cancer organizations” believe every aspect of the disease is covered by the larger few breast cancer charities.  We wish it were true.  This misconception and lack of awareness for the need to help survivors with breast reconstruction has kept My Hope Chest under the radar.
