Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and it is most treated when discovered early. It’s the reason why Marshfield Clinic and WSAW-TV NewsChannel 7 are bringing you Buddy Check 7, a breast health awareness and early cancer detection program. Our goal is to educate and encourage women to take control of your health by performing your monthly breast self-exam.

We invite you to join us. Watch for our special Buddy Check reports on the 7th of every month. Mark your calendar as a reminder to do a breast self-exam on the 7th of every month. Then call your “buddy” – a family member, friend or co-worker -- and remind her to do the same.

A breast self-exam is one part of a very important, three-part program helping to find breast cancer in its early stages. The three steps include the breast self-exam, doctor’s exam and routine mammography screening. It is recommended by major, national health organizations, including the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
