Chamber of Hope

Hyperbaric Center for Children (Tampa Bay)

Dear Chamber of Hope Community,

We did it! We are happy to announce that we have relocated to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We look forward to continuing our efforts with helping families who seek mild hyperbaric therapy, (mHBOT), and we will do this with the same integrity that Chamber of Hope has always shown.

After the unfortunate loss of my husband, Mark Fowler Sr., I am fortunate to announce that I was able to relocate our foundation to Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and in doing that I am able to keep our dream alive.
I look forward to seeing all the new as well as familiar smiling faces that Chamber of Hope has always loved helping.
See you soon.
Betsy Fowler

Please note: We will also accept adults into the chambers. Part of the adult’s fees will be used to help the children who cannot afford sessions to receive reduced rates or in some cases free sessions.

We are asking everyone for your help in spreading our new motto, “Pay-it-Forward”.  Paying it forward can be an adult making a donation for a child, a volunteer giving their time, or a former chamber user spreading their success story.  We need each of you to help spread the good word and work of the Chamber Of Hope, Hyperbaric Center for Children.  Tell everyone who we are.  It is a proven fact that hyperbaric therapy is the only hope for some.  Help us give the hope to someone in need.  Donate today.

Please send your donations to:

P.O. BOX 848326

Also you can Sponsor-a-Child,  under the “How You can Help Tab”.

Starting in March 2012,  Mark Fowler Jr.,  son of the organization’s founder Mark A. Fowler, Sr.,  assumed the head of the organization’s operations as its President and Public Relations Director.  You can read a personal statement by Mark Jr. on the home page, as well as read his biography on the “Directors / Volunteers Bios” page.

The St. Petersburg Times has published Mark’s obituary in the paper and online:



It is with great sadness and regret that we announce the passing of Mark, our Center Chairman, who lost his battle with cancer. Into his final hours, Mark was surrounded by family and friends.

He will be missed severely by his family, friends, Masonic Brothers, and those many people whose lives he touched in the work that he did tirelessly, day after day.

The Center will carry on its mission, in the spirit of Mark, and his lasting legacy will continue with each mHBOT treatment given. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Mark’s name to the Chamber of Hope.

Details regarding Services held in Mark’s honor will be forthcoming in the coming days.
