The Here for the Girls annual A Calendar to Live By features breast cancer survivors and their stories; but also, tucked inside the calendar is A Guide to Caring for Yourself, which offers important health information on breast cancer, managing risk, early detection, and much more. The funds we raise through this important project support our mission to improve the lives of young women affected by breast cancer.
A Calendar to Live By not only helps to fund our mission — the calendar is shared with our newest members (who are often newly diagnosed), so it serves as an initial source for support and information for young survivors. Also, the included breast health guide gives all women knowledge about breast health and information about reducing breast cancer risk. Our calendars are distributed not only to survivors, but to members of the community at large at various events and health fairs.
We invite you to be a part of A Calendar to Live By today!
Research shows that young breast cancer survivors’ emotional well-being is not adequately addressed during treatment, which focuses on healing the body. To improve their quality of life, young survivors need time for self-care, in-depth discussions on topics that help them on the path to recovery, and connection with peers going through similar experiences. This is just what occurs at our mission-related events.

Our volunteers come from the community, colleges, schools, and local businesses in the areas we serve. Some are young breast cancer survivors who volunteer to help each other get through this “journey” of cancer, and others are women and young people who have never had cancer. We are continually humbled by the generosity of the many individuals and businesses that give of their time, talent and treasure to help Here for the Girls fulfill its mission.
Each week at H4TG the T3 volunteers work in the office on Tuesdays to help with any task from preparing calendars for mailing to helping to develop routines that are beneficial to the mission and daily operations of our organization. Say hello to the T3 volunteers!

It takes a village to raise a non-profit, and we would be honored if you would become a member of our village. Here for the Girls has a variety of events for which we seek sponsors. Beyond grateful doesn’t begin to describe our appreciation for the individuals and businesses who entrust us with their donations.

#weareHEREFORTHEGIRLS! You can be Here for the Girls by doing your own fundraising activity or event at work or school so no young woman has to go through this without the help of peers who understand. There are easy and fun ideas: dress down or dress pink day, percentage of sales, donation jar, raffle off a prize, or hold an event like a zumbathon or fundraising party. And we can help! Contact us today at email@example.com to get started.
