Hello ,

Happy Holidays!

We've reflected on our blessings from the past year and would like to thank YOU for helping us make our mission a movement. 

2010 has been a wonderful year for Get In Touch and we are grateful for all of your support.

Since launching our Get In Touch Girls' Program only fifteen months ago, Daisy Wheels have rolled into 41 states and 13 countries.  Girls are learning about their bodies and making breast health part of their best health practice.

Now, that's a gift worth giving!

We wish you and your loved ones a joyous holiday season, and hope you take a moment this month to reflect on all of your blessings from the past year...

Hope Lives!
  GIT Your Gown On!
