My Hope Chest
Both a Las Vegas showgirl and breast cancer survivor, Alisa Savoretti founded My Hope Chest in 2003 to help other women who find themselves in the same position as she did. Alisa had a mastectomy as a part of her cancer treatment, but couldn't get a breast reconstruction since she didn't have health insurance. Without access to the surgery, her self esteem and confidence suffered—something that affects 22,000 breast cancer survivors each year, based on data from 2010. That's when she started My Hope Chest. Today she raises awareness about the lack of funding for reconstruction treatments and connects women with medical services to help complete their journey as survivors.
