About Gateway to Hope 

Gateway to Hope’s mission is to remove barriers to affordable, timely, quality breast healthcare and empower people to live full and healthy lives. Founded in 2005, two doctors were inspired to create a program to treat individuals who couldn’t afford to pursue treatment otherwise by a patient’s breast cancer journey. Our goal is to eliminate the disparities in breast health outcomes. GTH programs are designed to create greater access to care, helping to improve the outcomes of those impacted with breast cancer, those at risk for the disease, and those who seek preventative health in our community.
