Mary Ann's blog! 


Here at The Get In Touch Foundation, we have always considered October to be Breast HEALTH Awareness Month.

Our mission is to provide breast health initiatives that educate gals and guys of all ages how to "get in touch" with their bodies, information, and each other in our crusade against breast cancer.

We know that our Daisy Wheel is an innovative tool that teaches the importance of and how to do a breast self-exam - for life!

If you love your life - and we know you do! - it is definitely time to Get In Touch!

Do your BSE and then remind a friend and loved one to do theirs. #timetoGIT

Hope Lives!

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.
