Giving Isn’t Just About Making a Donation … It’s About Making a Difference!

My Basket of Hope

My Basket of Hope is a Not-for-Profit Organization.

We Are Supported By DonationS & Fundraisers.

 

Many of our services involve the giving of our time. A shoulder to lean on, phone calls to insurance companies, or an ear to listen and a heart that cares.

However, cancer is very expensive! It’s trips to the doctor when you don’t have gas for the car.  It’s eating healthy when the cupboards are bare, it’s paying the copays when all the money is gone.  It’s a daily sacrifice for everyone fighting this battle.

 

How Is Your Donation Used?

My Basket of Hope Gift Basket Example

The smallest things make the biggest difference!

My Basket of Hope Mastectomy Bra Give Away

Mastectomy Bras

A mastectomy bra is one that features fabric pockets inside the bra cups, which can hold a breast prosthesis in place after mastectomy surgery. Having reconstruction surgery is beyond what most can afford.  These can give a woman her self-esteem back again.
