Our Mission

Project Hope was created in 2016 to help the many women and men and their families currently affected by Breast cancer. Project Hope Butte County was founded by Tracie Hannick and Mollie Openshaw, two friends that have experiened the life changing effects of breast cancer. They came together and developed this non-profit organization following Tracie’s experiences during her own breast cancer treatment. During their experiences with breast cancer, it became painfully clear that there was a gap in services. Enter Project Hope.

Consider that:

  • 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer sometime in their lives
  • About 2,470 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2017
  • Disability insurance payments from public or private insurance plans lasts from between six and 12 months, only paying approximately 66% of normal wages.

These figures alone demonstrate the disconcerting reality for so many of our community members. Breast cancer does not just impact the person with cancer. As is any case of chronic illness, the impact is considerable and widespread- affecting family and friends. Project Hope works to provide assistance with the expenses associated with fighting this disease. Support is provided for medical expenses, transportation needs, wigs and prosthetics, groceries and travel for family members.
