Breast Cancer Awareness in Milford

State Representative Kim Rose (D-Milford) and The Get In Touch Foundation are ready to launch National “GIT Your Pink On!” Day to promote a breast health awareness campaign for young women at a press conference in Milford Thursday.

Rep. Rose together with Mary Ann Wasil Nilan, Founder, The Get In Touch Foundation, will discuss how everyone in the community can help by wearing pink on Friday to acknowledge Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s Proclamation and National “GIT Your Pink On!” Day.

The Get In Touch Foundation is a global breast “health” organization developed specifically for girls in grades 5-12 to emphasize the importance of educating them on breast self examination. The program teaches girls to “get in touch” with their bodies and has been developed by Get In Touch board members and members of the medical community, as well as focus-groups of girls ages 8-18.

In addition to the Girls' Program, they have a FREE Daisy Wheel Application on the iTunes Store that has been downloaded over 1,000 times, in 26 countries, since its launch this summer. The top 10 countries that have downloaded the Daisy Wheel Application, an interactive tool to educate girls, are the United States, Australia, Canada, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, China, Mexico, Japan and the Philippines.
