On behalf of our H4TG team, thank you for checking out our organization as a potential recipient of your donation. We are thrilled that you’ve decided to do your due diligence. In 2019, 80% of every dollar contributed went directly to our mission of supporting young women diagnosed with breast cancer under age 51. The remainder was allocated toward fundraising and administrative expenses.

Here are some examples of the 80% at work:

Monthly In-Person + Virtual Support

support systems where our women receive peer-based social and emotional support that improves the social and emotional well-being of our young women (diagnosed under the age of 51) with the oversight of highly qualified and trained facilitators.

Annual Survivor Retreat

A wellness weekend for survivors with the objective of improving quality of life and emotional well-being. This occurs through intimate and extended times of peer support in a safe, relaxing environment, meaningful sessions led by experts, and participation in fun or restorative activities. This weekend also helps promote healthy lifestyle habits that can reduce recurrence risks. A retreat scholarship is available for women with a hardship and need travel assistance in getting to the location.

Annual Metastatic Retreat

A two-day event exclusively designed for women with stage 4, incurable breast cancer. This event is impactful as it offers our women the strength of, and time to bond with, women sharing the same diagnosis, with end-of-life planning guidance from subject matter experts. The retreat helps them take charge NOW so they can focus on living today!

Facilitator Training

On boarding training, a comprehensive annual training weekend, and ongoing sessions dedicated to strengthening our facilitators’ skills, fostering mutual support, and enhancing their role as leaders and ambassadors of H4TG. We are pleased to recognize six new facilitators in 2019.

A Calendar to Live By

An annual calendar that features breast cancer survivor stories and “A Guide to Caring For Yourself.” It serves as an initial source for support and information for young survivors, and the included breast health guide gives all women knowledge about breast health and information about reducing breast cancer risk. Each year, over 8000 are donated to newly diagnosed women, medical facilities, free clinics, and community groups.

Support Through Education

Topic specific sessions designed to focus on breast cancer related issues, such as reconstruction or women’s health. Sessions are presented by our partners in the local medical community or subject matter experts in a particular field.

Here for the Girls helps young women who are diagnosed with the disease NOW to use a very scary, life threatening diagnosis as a catalyst for positive transformation by living life with an ! while educating the community about lifestyle changes that support breast health and overall healthy living.
