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.

Cancer runs in my husband's family and because of that I want to know everything possible about prevention, for him and our children. My mother developed post menopausal breast cancer that was caught in stage 0 and is not considered inheritable, but I still want to be vigilant. Self Chec reminds me of how important prevention and awareness are--not just about cancer, but also the leading threats to health, diabetes, heart disease and more.

Self Chec does a great job at getting people to understand that early detection of so many illnesses is within one's own grasp. The powerful images support the message that we have to face life-threatening diseases head on, no matter how uncomfortable that is, that we need to look at our own bodies and fight for ourselves. Bravo to Joan Peckolick for creating this non-profit.

Self-Chec was a wonderful guest on our college campus, twice! Joan actively got students interested in Self-Chec's interactive website and e-Health reminders. She also provided our students with a wealth of information and resources regarding preventative health measures, which will hopefully be utilized by them for years to come. Self-Chec is always full of energy and enthusiasm for the cause and a pleasure to work with!
