Buddy Check 13

Posted: Updated:

It's Buddy Check 13 Day! 

News 13 wants to remind you to do your monthly breast self-exams.  Doctors recommend monthly self exams once a woman reaches her 20s. 

The key is to look for changes.  The exams should be done at the same time each month.   

To receive a reminder on your phone, text "BUDDY" to 21321. 

The American Cancer Society provides information on the importance of early detection here:
