Our Mission

To improve the lives of young women affected by breast cancer!

Things to Know

Not-Your-Typical – It’s Transformational!

We embrace our young women and welcome them into the H4TG family. As in any family, sometimes our members need a phone call, an in-person hug outside a scheduled meeting, a visit, or extra information to help with day-to-day life. Together, our family mourns lost “sisters” and celebrates successes; we spread love and grow. Whatever support we can offer, we will, if it’s within our power. Because that’s what families do.

H4TG offers two primary support services: Beyond Boobs! with in-person support through community-based support systems in numerous localities and Pink Link with virtual support through its 24/7, nationwide, online community.

H4TG specifically serves women diagnosed in their 20s, 30s, and 40s because their challenges are very different from those of older women. Our services extend from diagnosis, through treatment, and beyond as the aftermath of the disease can last a lifetime.

We offer a place where our members don’t have to be strong for everyone else and provide peers to ensure they can face the future with all the love, information, and encouragement they need.

H4TG focuses on our women’s health, not just their breast cancer. We emphasize wellness and practicing healthy lifestyles to help our young survivors live their best lives.

A study by William & Mary Public Policy graduate students affirmed that “participating in a Beyond Boobs! support system positively affects quality of life, treatment, and recovery.”

H4TG funds its services solely with revenue from donations, events, and community support. We receive no government funding.

We provide services through comprehensively trained volunteers.

77 cents out of every dollar raised goes directly into our programs for the young women we serve.

We charge no fees for our services.
