Hooked on Hope Proceeds

To date, Hooked on Hope has raised nearly $360,000 for the breast cancer patients in the Tampa Bay Communities!

Funds are used to purchase, post-operative medically needed surgical garments, and other needed items not covered by insurance, for approximately 200 uninsured and under insured patients each year! In addition, the organization has partnered with local specialty companies to pay for 'lymphedema sleeves' for those breast cancer patients or survivors with the debilitating condition known as 'lymphadema.'

In addition, a grants program helps patients fighting breast cancer with treatment support grants between $500 and $1,500 as "treatment support" during breast cancer treatment. Hooked on Hope grants are used to assist patients with items such as prescriptions, office co-pays, and hospital co-pays and living expenses, during breast cancer treatment. Funds are intended for un-insured or under-insured breast cancer patients.
