A Calendar to Live By 2019

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.

Sponsorships are closed for the 2019 Calendar. Please check back soon for the 2020 Calendar! Click here to pre-order A Calendar to Live By 2019!

Renew Restore Retreat

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 (at no cost to them).

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.

Volunteer

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.

Fundraise

#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 info@hereforthegirls.org to get started.
