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.
