Mary Ann's blog! 


  

When The Get In Touch Foundation was "born" in 2004 on the heels of my first diagnosis with breast cancer, I had a vision for a breast health educational initiative for girls that would one day be the "go-to" program when it came to girls learning how to "get in touch with their bodies."

Because we are a breast HEALTH organization, it was critical for our logo and program to be associated with "life" and the freshness of youth.

Nothing is more alive than the smiling fresh face of a DAISY!

It lunges its smiling petals toward the sun, begging you to smile, as well!

We chose the DAISY to be the logo for our iconic life saving DAISY WHEEL, serving as a reminder to anyone familiar with our program to do your BSE, your breast self exam.

As spring bursts its way into our winter-weary hearts, take notice of Emerson's observation that the "earth laughs in flowers." And if you see a DAISY, take notice of your own body and do your BSE!

Hope Lives!

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!"  Click the Daisy Wheel on the right to find out more.
