Courage and goals help fight a rare form of breast cancerCourage and goals help fight a rare form of breast cancer Michele Meska has been fighting her battle for 10 years now. It's a battle she fights with her doctor -- for her family -- against Triple-negative breast cancer.
- 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.
