Making a world of difference right here in the Tampa Bay Communities

About Hooked On Hope

Co-founded by two sisters in 2009, Hooked on Hope, Inc is a local non-profit organization that has continued to raise funds for uninsured and underinsured breast cancer patients across all Tampa Bay communities. 

This grass roots organization, managed entirely by a team of talented, dedicated volunteers, serves the breast cancer patients of Tampa Bay in a number of creative and effective ways.

Every dollar after expenses goes directly to the ‘Treatment Support Grants Program.’ This fund pays rent, mortgage, utilities, car payments, health insurance and food. This fund also pays upfront co-pays for patients whose surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy treatment would be delayed or denied. 

The organization raises funds through several events including an annual Inshore Fishing Tournament, Clay Shoot, Golf Tournament and Pamper Party. We also rely on general donations and events within the community.
