We are beyond excited to announce that we are re-launching our Check Yourself! app!
If you didn’t already know (which of course you do 😉) KAB truly believes in the power of checking yourself and being your own health advocate. Here’s a little refresher on why the self-check is so important!
Know Your “Normal”!
As you probably know, we at Keep A Breast are all about the self-check! By checking yourself at the same time, once a month, you establish a healthy routine and relationship with your body.
The best time to Check Yourself! is about a week after your period, as this is when your hormone levels are most stable. It is important to check yourself at this same time so that you’re familiar with how you should feel at this time, and thus can easily detect any changes or abnormalities! Knowing what is “normal” for your body could potentially save your life!
It’s a Healthy Practice!
Healthy practices are so important to incorporate into your daily life. Whether it be using a BB cream with SPF, drinking lots of water, exercising regularly, or checking yourself, incorporating practices like this assist you in living the healthiest life you can. By adopting healthy practices, you take charge of your health and give yourself the power to be your own health advocate!
You are never “too young” for breast cancer
Over 300,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the US each year. Approximately 12,000 of those diagnosed are under the age of 40.
We believe that through a monthly routine of self-checks more people are likely to detect changes in their bodies quickly, will seek medical advice and potentially detect cancer early. Knowledge is Power!
What’s New About the App
The new version of the app features super cute artwork by the oh so talented, Sandi Calistro!

Updated scheduling tools
You can expect and more efficient and reliable scheduling system. Never miss a self-check again!
We are so excited that our app is now available in six languages! We have added German and Dutch to the already expansive list of languages, making it more globally accessible. It is also available in Spanish, French, Japanese and English.

It’s easy, just snap a selfie with three fingers to your chest, symbolizing your commitment to self-check, tag 3 friends to challenge them to spread the word of self-check, and of course, #CHECKYOURSELFIE!
