Mary Ann's blog! 


Where will you go this year, where will your feet take you? 

When we set an intention or a destination for ourselves, it is perfectly natural to focus on the end-game, to keep our eye on "the prize."

But don't forget to enjoy the first step. Each step, for that matter.

If you've set a New Year resolution or intention for yourself, also consider giving yourself permission to live in the moment, moving toward "the prize," but thoroughly, joyfully, and intentionally cherishing each step along the way.

The Get In Touch Foundation began as an idea nearly eleven years ago, and while we have had laser-like focus on our mission of providing Daisy Wheels and breast health education at no cost to girls in schools all over the world, we have also enjoyed and cherished the journey.

Whether it is meeting with School Nurses from all over the world and introducing them to the Get In Touch Girls' Program & Daisy Wheels, or speaking with a Get In Touch Youth Ambassador excitedly planning an awareness and fundraising effort in her high school, we are present to that moment, cherishing each and every step as we move toward "the prize" of free breast health education for all!

Hope Lives!

New York City Pretty In Pink

We are thrilled that our friend Alex Witt from "Weekends with Alex Witt" on MSNBC is chairing The Get In Touch Foundation's 3rd Annual New York City Pretty In Pink Cocktail Cabaret & Woman of Strength Award - and so delightfully fitting since we are honoring broadcast journalism trailblazer Shirley Wershba, one of the founding producers of CBS' 60 Minutes.

Shirley and her late-husband Joe were the subject of George Clooney's 2005 film, "Good Night, and Good Luck," nominated for six Academy Awards. Patricia Clarkson played Shirley in the film, and Robert Downey, Jr. played her husband Joe.

Broadway's inimitable Jim Ferris will be our host again this year, bringing along a stellar mix of Broadway's finest to perform throughout the evening. 

Join us on February 25th from 7-9pm at The Yale Club of NYC in the Roof Dining Room.

Shine On Beautiful 

We are SO proud of our friend Karyn Williams, the wildly talented Nasvhville artist who donated her time and talent to record "Shine On Beautiful" to benefit The Get In Touch Foundation... she performed at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry on December 19th, and we heard she brought the house down!

Brava, Karyn, Brava!!


"Shine On, Beautiful" is available on the iTunes Store and all proceeds benefit Get In Touch.

Daisy Wheel against map

Presenting a Daisy Wheel to newly-diagnosed patients who have daughters or granddaughters who would benefit from breast health education makes a diagnosis in a family a life giving moment as well as a teaching moment.  Daisy Wheels may be purchased for $5 each and come in packages of 25. When you purchase a Daisy Wheel, you are also helping to provide a Daisy Wheel to a girl somewhere in the world who will have FREE breast health education because of YOU!  It's simple..."When you get one, you give one!"
