Breast Cancer Heroes

Meet three spectacular women who are making a difference in ways as unique as they are.
By: Dana Hudepohl and Sushma Subramanian

Alisa Savoretti

Seminole, Florida

When Savoretti found a lump in her breast in 2001, she was 38 and uninsured. After Medicaid turned her down, a social services program helped her pay for a mastectomy and chemotherapy, but not reconstructive surgery. Desperate for insurance and money to pay her mounting bills, Savoretti returned to her former career as a professional dancer in Las Vegas, billing herself as the Lopsided Showgirl to raise awareness of her plight. “It helped—a lot—to have a sense of humor,” she says. “When I finally got my reconstruction, I named my girls Zsa Zsa and Eva.”

In 2003 Savoretti founded a nonprofit called My Hope Chest, to assist other patients in paying for reconstructive surgery, a procedure that can cost more than $50,000. While struggling to get her organization off the ground, she made ends meet by working a series of jobs (nanny, deli clerk, gardener); during her breaks she worked the phones to organize fund-raisers and set up pro bono operations. Nine years later, My Hope Chest has transformed the lives of nine breast cancer survivors, and five more surgeries are scheduled for this year. “We’ve served only a handful of patients to date,” says Scott Sullivan, MD, a volunteer surgeon, “but each one has gained a new sense of hope.”

My Hope Chest Introduces Official “Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon”

Seminole, FL (August 15, 2012) – My Hope Chest is proud to introduce the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon, the first ribbon to support uninsured and under insured breast cancer survivors. This new ribbon speaks to the restoration, transformation and the completion from the cancer journey that many survivors seek through reconstructive surgery after mastectomy. For those who desire, breast reconstruction provides closure and a new wholeness allowing a woman to put the disease behind her at last.

Official Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon

“The traditional ‘pink ribbon’ (shown below) has branded breast cancer ‘awareness, education and research’ but overlooks a huge population of underserved survivors that live with scars and a constant reminder of the disease,” founder Alisa Savoretti said. “There are hundreds of breast cancer groups in America focused on prevention and finding a cure, while the need for breast reconstruction has flown under the radar of the ‘pink ribbon.’”

The original breast cancer awareness 'pink ribbon'

The colors in the breast reconstruction ribbon transition and transform, just like the survivors My Hope Chest helps to become whole again. The ribbon goes from pink – the original breast cancer color, to whiteknown as the “light” or the power of healing. The white blends to yellow, the color of hope, sunshine and new beginnings!

The Breast Reconstruction Awareness Ribbon symbolizes transformation and closure from the disease. My Hope Chest hopes this new symbol will help others recognize this need and shine the light on this epidemic for thousands who have sacrificed a piece of themselves to save their life.

Founded in 2003 by Alisa Savoretti, My Hope Chest services pick up where other breast cancer organizations leave off providing “final step of breast cancer treatment” and helping women become whole again. Savoretti knows from first-hand experience how breast reconstruction after cancer helps restore not only the body but also transforms and heals the mind and spirit. She founded the organization after her own struggle with breast cancer.

BreezeComfort Helps Bring Boobies Back

*** For Immediate Release ***

August 25, 2010 – BreezeComfort has teamed up with nonprofit My Hope Chest to support uninsured women battling breast cancer. The lingerie brand will donate 50% of proceeds from each sale made on breezecomfort.com during the month of October to My Hope Chest, the only nonprofit helping breast cancer survivors without insurance afford reconstructive surgery. BreezeComfort is ready to give every woman confidence – whether it be through lingerie or the final step in their battle with a fatal disease.

As a company devoted to creating comfortable, breathable bras for women of all sizes, giving back during Breast Cancer Awareness Month was a natural fit. BreezeComfort hopes that through sales online they will be able to make a difference in the lives of heroic women everywhere who have battled breast cancer.


About BreezeComfort
Breeze Comfort (www.breezecomfort.com) was founded by a team of women’s wear experts with over 40 years of experience in the designing, manufacturing and distributing of both national and private branded women’s intimate apparel for leading retailers in the United States, Canada and Europe. Their goal is to provide women with a product that offers the ultimate comfort and support for their active lifestyles.

Breeze Comfort padded bras and sports bras are the most breathable padded bras and sports bras on the market. They have created the world’s first revolutionary ventilated padded bra and sports bra, which offers a combination of appearance, comfort, breathability and support. Patented perforated bra pads with pores (Ventipad) facilitate air circulation to the breast area. Traditional padded bras prevent the evaporation of perspiration, causing discomfort, rashes and acne. The Ventipad has perforations throughout the padding, which allows the passage of air through the bra pads to the breast area so that perspiration evaporates more quickly. This exciting bra pad advancement will change the way padded bras are made in the future.

About My Hope Chest
As the only nonprofit of its kind, My Hope Chest (www.myhopechest.org)provides funding for breast reconstruction surgery to women who have survived breast cancer but are lacking insurance or the financial means to gain their desired reconstruction. My Hope Chest raises public awareness about breast reconstruction, works to implement legislation that will require insurance companies to pay for mammograms or MRI’s for all women beginning at age 35 – and for women 30 years old with a family history of the disease, and focuses on the importance of self-exam from an early age.
