Breast Reconstruction Fast Facts

  • More than 22,000 women lost their breast in 2010 and did not have the insurance for reconstruction. How many years has this figure been growing? 
  • Now My Hope Chest helps “Insured Survivors” too, assisting payments of large deductibles to make their surgery possible.
  • The cost of a typical reconstruction for an uninsured individual at a “cash pay” rate is $25,000. ranges upwards of $45,000 and requires a hospital stay of 3-5 day acquire breast reconstruction surgery?
  • My Hope Chest helps “uninsured and under insured” survivor that fall through the cracks…. Insurance covers but many insured are applicants due to the lack of CO-Pay funds ranging from $2500- $5,000.


We are thrilled the ASPS has declared THIS day totally focused on the breast reconstruction issues, supporting our 12-year initiative to restore, transform and heal breast cancer survivors completely.  We encourage you to join their efforts and this largely unmet need and donate to the ASPS Foundation, granting program of which My Hope Chest was truly grateful to be a grant recipient in 2013.

    If it were a men’s Penis, I am sure that insurance would cover “reconstruction” 110%.
