Before introducing a bill to improve breast cancer identification education in Connecticut schools, Senator Gayle Slossberg (D-Milford) offered thanks to the late Mary Ann Wasil, founder and leader of the Get in Touch Foundation in Milford.
Wasil touched the lives of millions of women around the world who are fighting breast cancer, Slossberg said. Wasil died in April after a lengthy battle with breast cancer.
“The world has lost a true champion for women’s health,” said Slossberg. “Mary Ann Wasil is an inspiration who helped millions of women stay healthy. With this bill I hope to continue her work, ensuring that every young woman in Connecticut is familiar and comfortable performing self-examinations. We talked about this bill the last time I saw her, and I know she would have been thrilled to see it pass.”
