Welcome to our blog series, “Mission Moment!” It’s a snapshot of the impact our mission and programs have on the women we serve. If you have any questions about Here for the Girls support services and programs, email the program team at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Do you want to know who helps make our loving support possible? Our amazing facilitators, also known as “leaders of love!” And, trust us — they’ve truly got the love! These amazing women (a few of them are pictured here at our annual facilitator training weekend) volunteer their time to lead our in-person support systems which span across four states and serve over 300 members annually. They open their arms and homes to our members and provide support through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.
Check out what one of our members had to say about the impact of her support system:
“This group has taught me that I can face the ugly cancer beast, look it straight in the eye and say, ‘not this time cancer, you’re not taking another thing from me.’ It has taught me I’m not alone, and I am greater than the cancer beast.”
