It is our mission to add quality of life to breast cancer patients so that they can better manage the physical, emotional, social & financial side effects of breast cancer treatment.


Hope Lives! offers free, supportive services & products to breast cancer patients in active treatment in Larimer and Weld Counties. We partner with local service providers in the areas of holistic, integrative and natural medicine to offer products and support services that health insurance typically does not cover.


While fighting an arduous battle with breast cancer in 2001, Lydia Dody reached out to many complementary care providers to ease her Chemotherapy side effects and help endure the treatments physically, psychologically and emotionally. These services improved her recovery and quality of life so much that it moved her to start The Lydia Dody Breast Cancer Foundation non-profit to help other women in treatment. 

The mission was to support and strengthen those affected by breast cancer by providing care, guidance and education. We serve as a partner as they heal in mind, body and spirit.

The organization started providing services in January 2002 and since then Hope Lives! has provided services and improved the lives of thousands of women. The name has changed to Hope Lives! The Lydia Dody Breast Cancer Support Center to better describe who we are now.
