16 Buddy Check encourages women to take an active role in detecting breast cancer early through breast self-examination. NewsCenter16 and The Women’s Task Force of St. Joseph Regional Medical Center will become your "buddy" and remind you by e-mail each month to perform your breast self-examination.
16 Buddy Check is a free service. To join, register online using the form below.
How to participate:
Choose a buddy -- a friend, sister, mother or co-worker.
Complete the registration form below.
On the 16th of each month, check with your buddy to make sure she's doing her monthly exam and an annual mammogram if she's 40 or older. If either of you notice any changes in your breasts, see a physician as soon as possible.
