Creating Butterflies

October 6, 2014

“Just when the caterpillar thought her world was overâ she became a butterfly.”

Treesha Morris is one of the more fortunate survivors of breast cancer. Not only did she have a successful reconstruction, but her insurance reduced costs substantially. Realizing that many women these days do not have health insurance or the financial means to complete their treatment, Treesha decided to take a stand by volunteering with My Hope Chest– the only national non profit to provide funding for reconstruction for uninsured and under-insured breast cancer survivors.

With My Hope Chest, she’s helping survivors feel the impact reconstructive surgery can have on a woman’s life first-hand. Now, she’s addicted to helping as many cancer survivors as possible and this AWB grant will help complete a surgery for one of the women on their waiting list. Every butterfly counts!
