One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. It's the reason why WSAW-TV's Buddy Check 7 is so important.

NewsChannel 7 is hosting a phone bank during our early evening newscasts Wednesday, Oct. 11. It's from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. Coverage will take place during our newscasts along with an extended half hour of coverage from 6-6:30 p.m.

A panel of experts from Marshfield Clinic will be on hand to listen to your breast health concerns and answer questions you may have about breast cancer, self-exams and treatments. They will also share resources you can turn to for more personalized medical advice and support. All information is confidential and free.

You can call the phone directly at 715-203-8285.

Buddy Check 7 is an initiative aimed to remind you and a buddy to be proactive and perform a self-breast exam on the seventh of every month. It is sponsored by WSAW-TV and Marshfield Clinic. Let us help you win the fight against breast cancer.
