My Hope Chest: Breast Reconstruction Survey

It is incredible to us that in 2020, My Hope Chest, a small grassroots charity is still the ONLY national organization that recognizes the soon to be proven fact, thousands of women lose their breasts each year to save their lives… but have no means of gaining this final step of breast cancer treatment.  Shocking.  We’ve created this important survey, are partnering with some of the most respected breast cancer organizations to gather this data including Living Beyond Breast Cancer and the Young Survival Coalition, to name a few.  We appreciate your time and sharing this very important survey.


The Breast Reconstruction Survey
This survey is focused on the quality of life after surviving breast cancer. The goal is to determine a best estimate of the number of survivors that have lost a breast(s), or portion of, desired reconstruction but are/were unable to attain the surgery.

We will be utilizing the information we collect to:

·        Assess the need of uninsured and underinsured survivors in America desiring breast reconstruction.
·        Increase awareness of breast reconstruction as an option for survivors.
·        My Hope Chest may use your information to contact you with any further questions regarding your answers. We will not share your personal information with any third party. The results shared will be anonymous.

In addition to assessing reconstruction needs, we’re interested in how the financial situation of patients during their cancer treatment affected their life and ability to afford reconstruction surgery.
Did you know?
My Hope Chest receives referrals from the largest breast cancer charities in America that don’t fund delayed breast reconstruction or assist with the large insurance co-pays to make surgeries possible. We have a nation-wide waitlist and your help may help others.
This survey takes approximately 5-10 minutes to complete.
NOTE: While we respect the right of everyone’s choice to have reconstruction or not, please respect that this survey is designed to gather information to help identify the needs of survivors that desire, but cannot obtain reconstruction surgery.
