Turn awareness into action. Take the Keep A Breast Check Yourself! pledge to do a monthly self-check and help spread the word about the importance of early detection.

Knowing what is “normal” for you and your body can ultimately save your life. Remember, young people can and do get breast cancer.

BREAST SELFIE EVER

Love them, loathe them, selfies are here to stay and we’re challenging you to put them to good use. Post your “breast” selfie on social media and share with others that early detection is key.

step 1

SNAP a selfie with three fingers to your breast, symbolizing your monthly commitment to checking yourself.

step 2

CHALLENGE three friends to take the pledge by tagging them & letting them know why it's important to you..

step 3

SHARE your photo on social media & tag it with #CHECKYOURSELFIE.

  • LEARN HOW
    TO CHECK
    YOURSELF!

    Knowing your breasts, even if you have breast implants, will help you know when something isn’t right. Give your breasts daily massages to get to know them better and figure out what is “normal” for your body. Having boobies is normal and so is feeling them up!

  • MIRROR MIRROR

    Look in the mirror and see what you’ve got going on. Put your hands over your head and then on your hips. Front boob and side boob are created equal, so be sure to include both.

  • MINI MASSAGE

    Next, keep looking in the mirror and put one hand behind your head. Now place three fingers to your breast and check for anything that strikes you as weird or not your “normal.”

  • UP AND DOWN

    Move your three fingers in small circles with different levels of pressure. Choose easy, medium and then hard while walking your fingers to the next area, instead of lifting them off your boobies.

  • YOUR PITS

    Cover your entire breast up and down and into the armpit area, finishing inside your armpit. Leave no breast area unchecked! Side boobs are boobies too. Spend extra time in your pits where your lymphatic system lives and where many breast cancers develop – they may need extra circle massage love.

  • SQUEEZE

    Lastly, squeeze each nipple. If there is any discharge or pain, see a doctor right away.
