News 13 wants to help you remember to do your monthly breast self-exams with Buddy Check 13.

On the 13th of each month, you will receive an email reminder or text alert to do your breast self-exam. We'll also remind you on-air.

Doctors recommend monthly self breast exams once a woman reaches her 20s.  The exams should be done at the same time each month.

Simply sign-up online or text "Buddy" to 2-1-3-2-1.  That way you'll get an email or text reminder because that self-exam could save your life.
