Relaunch of the Buddy Check9 programRelaunch of the Buddy Check9 program Buddy Check9 is a program that encourages people to find a ‘buddy’ to call and remind him/her to get screened or checked for a cancer or illness. On the 9th of every month, we will highlight a different cancer or illness: symptoms, treatments and prevention. A buddy can be a family member, colleague or friend. With education and resources, we hope to empower individuals when dealing with their health.
Movie filming brings record tax revenue for Colorado townMovie filming brings record tax revenue for Colorado town A small Colorado town broke its sales tax revenue records thanks to the filming of a movie starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.
- 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.
