Do You Know a Woman?

Paula Abdul | Check Yourself | Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

 

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Avon Foundation for Women launches a powerful new call to action – #CheckYourself – featuring the release of this exciting new music video created with and led by acclaimed singer, songwriter and chorographer Paula Abdul.

#CheckYourself aims to cut to cut through the confusion related to screening strategies and encourages women to take control of their own breast health with three simple steps: Know Your Risks. Know Your Body. Talk To Your Doctor. #CheckYourself is the latest step in the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which raises funds and awareness for critical research and access to care programs.

The key to prevention is knowing how to protect yourself, and early detection remains incredibly important. Women should be aware of their family’s health history, perform routine self-exams and visit a doctor annually. Women over 40 should have a mammogram performed by their doctor.
