ARE YOU ONE OF THE GIRLS?

BREAST CANCER IS SCARY. You may feel alone, even with supportive family and friends. Here for the Girls is here for you! This can be a tough journey, but it’s easier together. 

We provide a network of young women who share laughter and wipe tears, who show their scars and calm fears. They help each other face their diagnoses and learn to live life with an exclamation point (!) instead of a period.

Other Ways to Receive Support

Outside of our in-person support systems, we offer virtual support and various activities throughout the year including H.I.P. (Hope-Inspiration-Power) Chick activities to get members together for fun and Annual Survivor Retreats  to help members heal and thrive, not just survive.

Virtual Support

Private Facebook Page is another way to chat with others and gain support. On our private page you can ask questions, get support, encourage others, offer opinions, or even just vent your frustrations if need be! You can feel the Boober! love among a whole community of young breast cancer survivors. 

Pink Link Connect is a private social community just for breast cancer survivors! Once you sign up, you’ll be able to log into the community and start connecting with women who know what you’re going through.

Once you’re in Pink Link Connect, take a moment to check out the Chat Choices forum. You’ll also be able to find other survivor sisters to talk to privately, if you’d like, or just chat with the whole group in the Chat Choices forum. You can also search for survivors to connect to based on location, diagnosis, treatment, and more.

Don’t forget to add a profile picture of yourself and a background photo on your profile page, if you’d like others to see what you look like! You can find ‘Your Big Sis’ if you have any questions, she is your link to Pink Link Headquarters.

Virtual Chats

The Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) virtual chat consists of eight 1-hour sessions that will meet once every two weeks starting in January 2020. Led by H4TG’s social work support team, each session will include opportunities for reflection, journaling, and sharing to explore the thoughts, feelings, and diverse experiences of members coping with metastatic breast cancer. In order to gain the most benefit, participants are asked to plan to attend all sessions if possible.

The MBC virtual chat is already in session. Stay tuned for future virtual chats!
