New Breast Self Examination Reminder App from Rethink Breast Cancer – Your Man Reminder
I have seen some really useful apps for smart phones recently, but one in particular called “Your Man Reminder” from Rethink Breast Cancer piqued my interest (for obvious reasons). It features some very nice looking young men reminding you to do your monthly breast self examination. I’m not exactly convinced that he shows enough thoroughness with regard to the physical checking, but it is a good reminder to do it.
Check out the video they made (just might want to ignore the umm… interesting dancing at the end!):
Rethink Breast Cancer is a Canadian based advocacy group started in 2011.
From the Rethink Breast Cancer website: “Rethink is the first-ever, Canadian breast cancer charity to bring bold, relevant awareness to the under-40 crowd; foster a new generation of young and influential breast cancer supporters; infuse sass and style into the cause; and, most importantly, respond to the unique needs of young (or youngish) women going through it. No pink ribbons required.”
I love that, especially the last bit. The app is available for free on iTunes and Android.
The Rethink Breast Cancer website has some great information about healthy food, prevention tips, some inspirational posts by young survivors of breast cancer, and they have fundraising events and ways to get involved. It looks like a good resource, they are doing good work over there. Here’s a link to their blog: http://blog.rethinkbreastcancer.com/
As you may know, I’m all about prevention and welcome young women to my site and to my free newsletters and e-books to empower themselves with information on how to prevent breast cancer, and/or prevent recurrences. If you are interested in receiving that information, you can sign up for them on the right-hand side of this page, and/or “like” me on Facebook (MarnieClark.com). It is my honor and my goal to help you through this so that you emerge from breast cancer feeling better than before, thriving!
