Women Empowering Women — Shifting the Paradigm

Donna_GroupA phenomenal thing happens when women become educated and empowered.

Inspiration. Motivation. Passion. Connection. Action.

This is the fuel igniting a paradigm shift in women’s health.

Women sharing their personal experiences. Their concerns and fears. Their desire for truth and justice. Their vision for health-care without harm.

Empowering one another to listen to that small voice inside. And to remember how incredible and brilliant this innate, built-in intuitive guidance system is.

This “inner knowing” is what leads us to question the status quo, the pressures, the conflicts of interest, and the propaganda. It leads us to investigate even further. Little by little we discover new possibilities and solutions. From here, we make intelligent, logical “common sense” choices — based on facts — not fear.

One by one. Through blogs and websites. On Facebook and Twitter. Through enlightening films. And by gathering together.

Thank you to all the women who are empowering women. Together, we are shifting the paradigm.


About Donna Pinto

I was born and raised in New Jersey and moved to the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles when I was 12. I graduated with a BA in Journalism/Advertising from San Diego State University. After a short stint in magazine ad sales in LA, I was offered my dream job working for Club Med. I spent two years working at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met while working at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico. We returned to "real life/jobs" for three years before we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. Together we wrote a book called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life," a quote book for new graduates. Becoming a mom changed my life and I was fortunate to work part-time from home with many amazing nonprofits. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis inspired me to an investigation that culminated in creating DCIS 411 and Give Wellness.

    Great post, and as always, so eloquent! Thank YOU, Donna, for all you are doing to bring sanity to the DCIS issue. Your blog has empowered and educated me and I know it will continue to do so, as well as the comments and information other women share on the blog. We’re all in this together!

    Hi everyone has anyone had the oncotype dx test done prior to any treatment to see what your chances of invasive breast cancer later in life? What was your opinion of the accuracy of the results? Like to hear from you
