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.

Our History

This special, 501(c)(3) not-for-profit women’s health organization was birthed as Beyond Boobs!, Inc. in 2007 by two survivors who experienced first-hand the lack of resources specifically designed to meet the unique needs of young women affected by breast cancer. So they brought together other young survivors in their hometown of Williamsburg, Virginia, to help each other turn their diagnoses into catalysts for positive transformation. This initial grassroots, in-person support group expanded into Beyond Boobs! Not-Your-Typical Support Systems in communities in different states, and it is growing. Vicki Tashman’s 2015 gift of the not-for-profit Pink Link, her online support community for breast cancer survivors, greatly extended the reach of their special style of support. With each retaining its own identity, Beyond Boobs! (in-person support) and Pink Link (online support) joined forces in 2016 under the name Here for the Girls, Inc. to reach more young women with their core offering, love.
