A quickly-growing non-profit which educates young girls about breast health just launched in Charlotte.
The "Get in Touch" Foundation teaches girls grades 5 through 12 the importance of, and how to do, a breast self-exam. Its mission is to encourage women of all ages to "Get in Touch" with their bodies, information and each other in the crusade against breast cancer.
CEO and Founder Mary Ann Wasil came to Charlotte Thursday night for the Foundation's inaugural fundraising event in our area, something called the "Women of Strength" awards. WBTV Anchor Molly Grantham and her mom, Wilsie Hartman, a 24-year survivor who was re-diagnosed last year, were these first year recipients.
Wasil, a woman fighting breast cancer herself, emphasized "Get in Touch" isn't about breast cancer. It's about breast health. She has recently worked with school nurses to get "GIT" in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools.
In three short years, the "Get in Touch Foundation" has branched into 50 states and 21 countries. It also has a free app any girl in the world can download through the iTunes store… girls in 76 countries have downloaded and are using it to learn about their bodies.
