Mary Ann's blog! 


Hello , 


On September 1, 2011, we celebrated the 2-Year Anniversary of the launch of the Get In Touch Girls' Program & Daisy Wheels©.


Since then, Daisy Wheels© have rolled into 44 states and 19 countries...over 100,000 girls have received Daisy Wheels© and an introduction to the role that breast health should play in their glorious lives.

We provide Daisy Wheels© FREE to schools...and we do it with your support, and the support of so many who support our mission to "change the world one girl at a time."

We also provide Daisy Wheels© (at a cost) to cancer centers and breast centers, gynecologist and pediatric offices.  Our Get In Touch Girls' Program & Daisy Wheels© are being recognized as a game-changer in the world of breast health education.

Eleanor Roosevelt said it well...and the beauty of my dream, born seven years ago, when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer, was to be able to develop and provide a free breast health educational program to girls that would make their future brighter and healthier. 

We're well on our way!

Hope Lives!

Are YOU Dreaming of Pink Vespas?
Sep2011-Vespa2Loads of people (and mascots, too) have been posing with the GIT Daisy-adorned pink Vespas that are sitting in various locations around the Lehigh Valley.  Ten retailers are selling tickets for a chance to win one at each location, and a portion of the proceeds will be made to GIT. 

If you can picture yourself cruising along on one of these fine pink machines, click here for ticket sales info.
