Here for the Girls (Beyond Boobs!) Williamsburg Support Group
As young women who belong to a “club” no one wants to join, we know the value of sharing this journey with each other. We host monthly support group meetings in our own homes. We focus on our women’s health, not just their breast cancer. We emphasize wellness and practicing healthy lifestyles to help our young survivors live their best lives. Friends and family members are always welcome to participate too.
