While My Hope Chest can not guarantee if or when we can help applicants, it is our goal to serve as many survivors as possible as quickly as possible each year. Because we receive referrals from the largest breast cancer charities in America that do not fund reconstruction surgeries, we have an ongoing wait list nationally so we appreciate your patience and advocacy.
We understand waiting is hard, to be proactive in the meantime, do this:
Download our Breast Reconstruction Education and Options pamphlet to learn about your reconstruction options. Ask your plastic surgeon if you can work out a payment plan.
Start with your oncology group and ask if they have a “foundation.” These foundations often have funds to help pay patient bills during treatment. Contact your local hospitals, especially a university hospital. Speak to the “breast care centers'' that have experience and resources to assist breast caner patients. within these hospitals may also have resources about foundation funds that may be available. Oftentimes these larger institutions have resources and funds set aside for “uninsured” individuals.
If you need help with medicine, again speak with your oncologist (let them work for you.) Ask them for the manufacturer of the drugs and number for you to reach out directly to the pharmaceutical companies that often have programs to assist with medicines.
Advocate for My Hope Chest. Share our vital mission with your surgeon and doctors and in your community. Follow us and share the charity's work on social media and with friends and family. Paying it forward may be the quickest way we can help. Contact us to learn more.
