Keep A Breast teamed up with verynice studio and The Rare Studios to re-think the role of smart phones in breast cancer awareness and prevention. The FREE app provides a visual step-by-step overview of the breast self-exam and allows you to easily schedule an automatic monthly reminder with a pop-up text reminder.
There’s been an ongoing conversation happening in the breast cancer community for a while. A conversation about whether or not checking yourself helps detect a cancer diagnosis or is even necessary for your own health. In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force pretty much recommended “against teaching breast self-examination (BSE).” Crazy, right? Here at Keep A Breast, we strongly believe that knowing your body and your “normal” is essential to your health. It’s crucial to understand and be aware when something is wrong, even as a teen or young adult.
