What Hooked on Hope is All About

Hooked on Hope, Inc. is a local non-profit organization founded in 2009 serving the breast cancer patients of Tampa Bay. The organization proudly serves patients across all Tampa Bay Communities for un-insured and under insured patients. Hooked on Hope raises funds through an annual inshore fishing tournament, silent auction, pamper party, annual golf tournament, sponsorships, general donations, and community partnerships.

Hooked on Hope funds are disbursed year-round through ‘treatment support grants’ which provide direct patient care and support to patients during their difficult journey through breast cancer treatment. Funds are allocated for doctor visit office co-pays, hospital co-pays, prescriptions, and living expenses. In addition, the organization partners with specialists for patients suffering from the debilitating condition known as ‘lymphedema.’ Lymphedema services include physical therapy, sleeves, and gloves. The organization also pays for specialty mastectomy bras and breast prosthetics.

The Hooked on Hope Community Partnership Program helps reach breast cancer patients throughout the vast communities that comprise Tampa Bay. The organization remains steadfast in its commitment to expanding services and funding through its community partners.

Hooked on Hope is ‘Making a World of Difference Right Here in the Tampa Bay Communities.’ To date, Hooked on Hope has raised over $360,000! The breast cancer patients of Tampa Bay need your support! Many sponsorship and donor opportunities are available. Won’t you partner with us and get ‘Hooked on Hope!
