Gateway to Hope isn’t about breast cancer. WE’RE ABOUT PEOPLE.

About those affected–the patients and their caregivers, children, loved ones, and communities.

We’re about early prevention and free education, about healing families and communities, about equitable, life-saving treatments, and about compassionate breast health care.

We provide critical support to reduce financial and emotional burdens, empowering individuals to focus on their health; to inspire, survive and thrive.
 

Gateway to Hope is about helping create better lives throughout our region.

The birth of a support network

Gateway to Hope began as a small team of volunteers working to provide donated healthcare and services to women in need. Those volunteer nurses became staff, and our model has evolved to meet the needs of women today.
