Mission:

Self chec is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing the best and most comprehensive free “keeping healthy” one-to-one communicated tools to help protect you and those you care about from cancers, heart disease, diabetes and obesity; diseases that are often preventable, treatable and curable. Most people are reactive when it comes to their health; they seek out health info when they are already sick or a friend has been diagnosed. Self chec does the opposite, it nudges the public about the importance of proactive prevention, early detection and wellness care of cancers and other chronic diseases, so they can reduce their odds of getting sick in the first place.

It is impossible to deny the passion of Self Chec and the determination to help save lives by empowering individuals to take charge of their own health.

Self Chec has provided me and my family with valuable and potentially life saving information. I think their mission is so important, because prevention really is the cure to many of our modern health crises.

Self Chec has inspired me.

Self Chec reminds me that personal health not only affects the individual, but also their loved ones. It has inspired me to become more involved with my own health and to feel empowered in doing so. It inspires me to pass this feeling of empowerment along to those I love and those I don't know, because it is such an essential message.

I wasn't aware of the various ways I can keep my health in check in the comfort of my own home and daily routines. Thanks to Self Chec, I have been leading a healthier lifestyle and it feels empowering to know that I can do this all on my own.

Self Chec is a lifesaver - literally. As a stage 4 head and neck cancer survivor I cannot stress the importance of early detection. I was lucky - but "luck" is not enough. Please pay attention to this website and the valuable tools it offers. Self Chec is a reminder to all of us that we can take control of our health - and with early detection many cancers can be treated and/or cured. Thank you Self Check - Thank you Joan - for your wisdom, dedication and commitment to the health and well being of all......

I've been receiving Self Chec's notices for quite a while. Even through the busiest days they always remind me to stop and remember what is really important, my health and that of my family. What a great organization!

Self-Chec does what a great friend or family member does, helps you to take care of yourself. Not only are monthly reminders sent out, but everyone is invited to include those near and dear in this wonderfully caring community.

A truly great organization. We have friends who would not be healthy today without the help of Self chec. They are life savers, without exaggeration.

I didn't realize how "I" could make a difference in my own healthcare. That's the "Self" in Self Chec. Too often we wait for doctors to catch problems, but Self Chec has convinced me that I am an equal partner in my own health future.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

At first it was hard to overcome the natural act of avoidance. Thank you Self Chec for making it easy and being a constant reminder of how we can truly live our lives to the fullest, which as we all know is making it the healthiest.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Self chec is a lone leader on the prevention side of cancer-focused health. Centered around a healthy lifestyle that helps prevents cancer in the first place and encourages early detection to increase survivability is the closest thing we have to a cure right now. And that makes Self chec more important to those suffering today than a cure that lives in the future ever could.

Self Chec has the best kinds of missions: prevention. So much tragedy could be avoided if more people took the easy steps to keep cancer and disease from taking hold!
