Pausing To Remind – Buddy Check 12
(Self Awareness Reminder)  
  
Mark your calendars,
set your alarm to remind a buddy
and check yourself on the 12th!

Buddy Check programs are now offered in multiple US cities, as well as in Japan and Germany. Here’s how it works:

  • Check out pamphlet
  • Or call your physician and get your step-by-step instructions for breast self-examination and self-awareness kit
  • Set a reminder that on the 12th of every month you will call your buddy and remind them to check themselves between the 7th and 10th day of their menstrual cycle
  • If a lump is detected, call your physician immediately

Let us know if you have any questions, concerns and we will try to provide resources that can assist you!
