This App Could Save Your Life

October is Breast Cancer awareness month, so it’s a good time to showcase this nifty app that reminds you to give your lumpy bits some regular TLC.

Every month, over 4000 women in Britain alone will get diagnosed with breast cancer. That’s one person every 10 minutes receiving this devastating news.

But the silver lining on that cloud is that the earlier you catch it, the better chance you have of beating it. Breast Cancer Now estimated that if everybody did their regular checks, it could save 1500 lives a year. That’s a high price to pay for forgetting to spend a measly few minutes on yourself.

So now you can download the free Breast Check Now app from the App Store or Google Play and it will help you keep track of those all-important regular checks to fit in with your busy lifestyle.

The goal is to get at least 50,000 women to download it over the next 12 months, which would make it the same number as are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in Britain.
