Faces of Hope

Brittney – Anchorage, AK

Brittany was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at 31, just a few days after the arrival of her newborn son. Facing motherhood and cancer simultaneously can be the reality of many women in treatment, and she handles it with strength and grace. Thank you for finding us, Brittany!

Katie – Portland, MI

For the month of October, we continue to honor our community of Metastatic Breast Cancer survivors. Katie shows her spark and sass every day, LEANING IN to life, and saying YES (and NO) more. She has shared her story with Hope Scarves, and returned her scarf. We love you Katie!

Tammy – Zebulon, NC

For the month of October, we are giving shout-outs to our amazing Metastatic Breast Cancer community. Meet Tammy – a Hope Scarf recipient, storyteller and MBC thriver living in North Carolina. After her initial diagnosis in 2008, she became metastatic in 2012 at age 46. Tammy lives each day with creativity and joy.

Hope Scarves Founder, Lara MacGregor launched My Hopeful Life as an extension of Hope Scarves in 2020.  This initiative, rooted in her personal story, started with her widely followed blog, My Hopeful Life.  And now includes a film, podcast, speaking engagements and one day, a book.   Living with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer has given Lara a unique perspective on facing uncertainty, grounding oneself in gratitude and embracing each day.  Her vision & dedication to Hope Scarves is a powerful force for good in the world.   Follow along with My Hopeful Life as she expands the way we cultivate hope.
