LA “Pretty In Pink” – other press
“We always move in the direction of “hope” here at Get In Touch. It is the very essence of who we are, the founding principle that led to the creation of our global educational breast health initiative that empowers girls to ‘get in touch’ with their bodies.”
“Since one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, it is important for women of all ages to ‘get in touch’ with their bodies, information, and each other in our crusade against breast cancer. Our Daisy Wheel teaches girls in grades 5 – 12 the importance of, and how to do a BSE – for life After all, they will become women one day, and that one in eight statistic is something we can’t ignore.”
“The recurrence of my breast cancer last year, as you know, has been challenging at times, bittersweet, but mostly sweet. I ‘Choose Joy’ because like Emily Dickinson says, ‘the mere sense of living is joy enough.’ I ‘Choose Joy’ with each Daisy Wheel that rolls into the hands of a girl somewhere in the world who is now armed with information about her body that may one day save her life. I ‘Choose Joy’ with each School Nurse that signs up for our free Get In Touch Girls’ Program, knowing she is “changing the world one girl at a time” and making our mission a movement. I ‘Choose Joy’ with each Get In Touch Youth Ambassador that has made a commitment to breast health education in her community and the mission of GIT. How can I not ‘Choose Joy?’ Everywhere I turn, joy seems to choose me!”
