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 only 5 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.
Billing herself as the “Lop-sided Showgirl”, Alisa shared her personal story and plans for an organization as a result of it, gaining media attention through a news story. Alisa had to wait nearly 3 years to acquire her own reconstruction. She realized then that there was a huge gap in treatment that existed for “uninsured” women suffering from a mastectomy.

My Hope Chest always has a longer wait-list than funds needed to help every woman that comes to us.
Your participation in and contribution today will truly help fund future surgeries and other programs for breast cancer survivors, helping make women whole again in body, mind and spirit.
Thank you for your support!
