Buddy Check9: Colorectal Cancer Awareness on March 9Buddy Check9: Colorectal Cancer Awareness on March 9 March 9 is Buddy Check9 day. This month we are focusing on Colorectal Cancer. March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month. Colorectal cancer is cancer that forms in the colon or rectum and affects both men and women. It is the second leading cancer killer in the US, but it doesn’t need to be with screening.
- Buddy Check9 has been a part of 9NEWS for more than 20 years.
The idea behind the Buddy Check9 program is quite simple. On the 9th of every month, we ask women to do a monthly breast self-exam and then call their "buddy" to remind her to do the same. Their buddy can be a family member, colleague or friend. Hundreds of women have found lumps; the majority of them are not malignant. Our hope is that cancer is discovered in its early stages, when it is most treatable.
