About Buddy Check 12

Everyone knows if you detect breast cancer early, your odds of beating it are better than 90 percent so it makes sense to do self exams. Over a decade ago, First Coast News' Jeannie Blaylock partnered with Baptist Health to create Buddy Check 12 -- designed to promote monthly breast self-examinations and to educate women on the importance of early detection. Watch Jeannie's Buddy Check 12 reports every 12th of the month on First Coast News and remind a buddy to self-check for breast cancer. Call (904)202-CARE to our partner, Baptist Health, and we'll mail you the Buddy Check 12 kits with stickers for free.
