Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer, Health, Public & Societal Benefit, Public Health

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.

I’ve sent Self chec’s free ecaring cards to my friends over the years and feel so good to be able to
do my part in reminding the people I care about how important they are to me. Thank you Self chec for having this on your site.

Self chec’s messages about early detection and prevention of chronic diseases is so important in saving lives. Hopefully sooner than later they will have the support they need to get to everyone who has the potential to being diagnosed with a chronic disease and their dream of saving 1 million lives each year will come true.

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.

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 is a wonderful organization because it aims to help everyone; It is constantly promoting tips and tricks to keep readers and their families and friends healthy and strong. I am only 22 years old, but because of the articles posted by this organization, I know how to prevent certain diseases like cancer and diabetes that could affect me later on in life. I also have been sharing the information that I've learned through Self Chec with my parents and grandparents to keep them healthy. After learning about the little things that we can do to stay healthy, we've been committed to eating healthier and exercising more often. Self Chec is a great organization and it has helped me and my family gain the information we needed to lead healthier lives.

Most health sites are for people struggling with a disease, and so much of the information is to eat healthy and exercise. Those are things people need to know about at as early an age as possible--and that's the beauty of Self chec--its focus is on prevention. Of course living the good life isn't enough to ward off every health problem. It also details the screenings that can help find illnesses early, not just MD tests but ones I can do at home. I've shared the site with friends and family. It should be mandatory for everyone who wants to stay healthy and life a long life--before you need sites about illnesses.

I really like the language and the visuals--it takes a lot of the embarrassment out of asking, how do I do this? It's all there

As a cancer survivor who required skin checks every few months, but wanted to put the "intruder" out of my mind and pretend everything was normal, the Self chec reminders were life savers. Presented in a non-threatening way, their messages, reminders and vision lent support and motivated me to take better care of myself, not only for me, but for my loved ones. Ellen Ziegler

Self chec is my best "Buddy" system. Timely reminders help me to stay up to date with skin checks for recurrences of suspicious lesions. It's a non-threatening and creative way to remind myself and loved ones to practice prevention for all forms of cancer. I greatly appreciate the care and expertise that goes into the information provided by the self chec organization.
