Be part of a special Here for the Girls program that is our cornerstone, the award-winning, annual A Calendar to Live By! We began our not-for-profit with the 2008 calendar. It is a physical representation of what we stand for as an organization, helping young women with breast cancer live their best lives. The calendar contains a breast health guide to help women take charge of their bodies, because part of living your best life depends on taking charge of your health, whether you’ve been diagnosed or not.

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 Renew Restore Retreat each year, an event for young breast cancer survivors.
The Retreat program includes activities focused on relaxation, health (mental/physical) and wellness, such as massage, self-defense, yoga, self-care, and an outdoor challenge course. Activities promote bonding, social support, and healing interaction with women from across our service areas to further develop and strengthen individual and group ties.
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!

Volunteers also assist in program presentations (speaking engagements, health fairs, and exhibit booths), administrative stuff, coordinating retail inventory, organizing retreats, staffing events, fundraising, and representing Here for the Girls at community events to help spread our educational messages.

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.
