What is Buddy Check?

Buddy Check is a program to promote breast health. We'll even send you a simple reminder to do a breast self-exam.

How it Works:

Find a buddy -- a family member, friend, or co-worker. On the 11th of each month, call your buddy and remind each other to do a breast self-exam.If you find a lump, call your physician.

The 11Alive program to help fight breast cancer is more than 20 years old. To celebrate, we're focused on YOU!

After all, Buddy Check is designed to help Atlanta women fight breast cancer by doing monthly breast self exams, and staying informed of the latest in breast cancer research.

If you want to be a part of our on air and online campaign as a "Buddy of the Month", send us a picture of you and/or you and your Buddy. Click here to share your story (make sure you attach a picture), or to go to Facebook.com/11Alive.
