 Message from our Founder...

“My Hope Chest’s unique mission is a call to ‘ACTION’ honoring breast cancer Survivors focused on breast restoration, a little known aspect of the disease in need of much support.” said My Hope Chest Founder, Alisa Savoretti.  "We are excited for even more Tampa Bay businesses, groups and individuals to join our crusade this year to help ‘finish’ for women what breast cancer had started. We are looking forward to an even larger turnout of folks at our 4th annual event and party, raising funds and supporting our mission of ‘HAPPY’ and new beginnings for survivors!" 

Can't wait to see you fly!  Alisa
