Bay County, Fla. -

The new year is a time to set new goals and new habits.  Monthly breast self-exams are an important habit to get into.  News 13 wants to remind you of the importance of those self-exams.

Cancer survival rates are increasing, and part of the reason is more sophisticated treatment options.  Doctors say early detection is also helping catch cancers at an early stage, which makes treatment easier.

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.
