Check Your Boobies is Dedicated to Early Detection and Prevention of Breast Cancer
Check Your Boobies was started by Heike Malakoff, a woman who found her cancer in her early 30’s when she was breast feeding her twins. Today cancer-free, Heike is a walking testimonial for the power of early detection and self-advocacy.
Our name says it all: Check your boobies, do it regularly and with attitude! CYB is all about giving healthy woman the tools for early detection of breast cancer for the best outcomes and the least fear. One in seven women will get breast cancer in their lives, so we owe it to ourselves and our families to know our breasts, and find any problems early.
Through Check Your Boobies parties, we provide women with a fun, engaging and non-threatening way to learn about breast health. Like a book club or Tupperware party, the Check Your Boobies parties are a mixture of discussion, laughter and information, led by breast health professionals and breast cancer survivors. Participants walk away with information on prevention, self-check techniques and self-advocacy. We also provide a free email reminder, which helps them remember to check their boobies every month.
