Stephanie’s Wish

Created in memory of Stephanie Simon Allen, Stephanie’s Wish is a lasting tribute to an extraordinary young woman and her courageous battle with breast cancer. She was always grateful for the unlimited medical care that was available to her. Donations to Stephanie’s Wish will help other women fighting breast cancer by giving them access to the treatment they so desperately need to survive.

Stephanie loved to cook and try new recipes, so she put together a cookbook to pass on to her children and family. All proceeds from Stephanie’s cookbook – Recipes from the Heart – will support Gateway to Hope and women fighting breast cancer. We hope these recipes bring joy to you and your family this holiday season, and for years to come.

Choose Your Delivery Method

Insurance Premium Program (IPP)

The IPP pays for health insurance premiums (Private and Employer Insurance, Marketplace, COBRA and Medicare) or reimburses patients for health insurance premiums throughout their breast cancer treatment and reconstruction. This allows patients to keep their own physicians and continue treatment without interruption, even if they lose their jobs and related benefits.

Gail’s Legacy

Gail Gast’s memory will live on forever through a life-changing fund created to help ease everyday financial stresses for women and their families who are impacted by breast cancer. Gail’s Legacy honors a remarkable woman and her daughter, Jacki Rosen, who is a founding board member of Gateway to Hope.
