Barbara Hensley lost her two sisters to breast cancer. She saw firsthand the financial hardships that cancer patients face. After meeting other patients and hearing their stories, she had to do something. In 2001 she started Hope Chest for Breast Cancer.
Hope Chest doesn’t fund research, it funds the financial needs associated with treatment. It pays the rent, keeps the lights on, puts food in the fridge, pays for childcare, and other needs of breast cancer patients.
Barbara Hensley is an Apple Autos customer, and we became a supporter of her and her cause. Since 2011 we have raised over $38,000 for Hope Chest. Every May we donate $1 for every oil change we do to support Hope Chest for Breast Cancer. Customers have the opportunity to match or round up. This year our goal is to contribute another $10,000 to Hope Chest for Breast Cancer.
