Jeff Morrill is H4TG Co-Founder Mary Beth Gibson’s brother. Here he shares why he’s Here for the Girls:
Schopenhauer said that talent can hit a target no one else can hit, but genius hits a target no one else can see. Mary Beth Gibson, co-founder and executive director of Here for the Girls, is the latter. And I would know, because she’s my sister, and I’ve been observing her successes for a lifetime.
After surviving cancer herself, Mary discovered the enormous needs of a population of young women reckoning with breast cancer, and she decided to do something (actually a lot) about it. With the focus, tenacity, and ambition of a Silicon Valley start-up, she and her co-founder, Rene Bowditch, started from scratch and created an organization that would be there for the girls. But ultimately it’s not about Mary—because her vision and effort have inspired a legion of women and men to join in the mission. Collectively, they do so much for so many people…delivering love and services for people navigating terrible circumstances when they need it the most.
I am here for the girls because I am one of the legion who has been inspired by my sister.
