Mary Ann's blog! 


The school year has already begun for many of you, which means it's time to "Rise & Shine" each day and open our minds and our hearts to new experiences and new opportunities to learn!

We can't think of a better way to shine than for 13-18-year old girls and their mothers or significant female role models in their lives to join us at our "Informed & Strong" Summit for Women and Girls on October 24-25 at The Omni New Haven Hotel at Yale.

Our stellar lineup of speakers includes Yellowberry Founder and teen entrepreneur, Megan Grassell; NBC Entertainment President, Jen Salke; CEO of the Ms. Foundation for Women, Teresa Younger; a diverse panel of teens who will have an honest and thought-provoking conversation about race; and dozens more!

Our Summit Steering Committee has been working tirelessly to develop a day-and-a-half-long event that will make everyone who attends excited to "Rise and Shine" every single day!

Shine On, Beautiful, Shine On!

Hope Lives!

Daisy Bowl 2015 Huddle 

I was delighted to meet with this Milford, Connecticut Daisy Bowl 2015 team, winners of the GUESS Watches, as they began strategizing for the 2016 game! 
Last February they played on a field covered in almost 3' of snow - believe it or not, these ladies are hoping for another snowy game day!

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