Check out this website for all the young ladies who are always wondering…where do I look? what am I looking for?
I feel it is important to start awareness about breast cancer and yourself in general at a young age.
The mission of the Get In Touch Foundation is to encourage women of all ages to Get In Touch with their bodies, be informed, and communicate with each other in the crusade against breast cancer. A cornerstone of this mission is the Get In Touch Girls Program, developed specifically for girls in grades 5-12 to educate them on the importance of, and how to do a breast self exam. In collaboration with a medical consulting board that includes a school nurse, a pediatrician, an oncologist, a breast surgeon and a radiologist, GIT has developed the Daisy Wheel. This highly innovative tool will be introduced by health educators to girls beginning in 5th grade, when introducing topics of hygiene and the girls changing bodies, and will be taught annually through 12th grade. These Eight Tips for Eight-Straight years of the Girls Program will give the girls the foundation they need to practice Breast Cancer Self Exams – for life.
