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.

As a member of the board of Self chec I can personally attest to the fact that it is one of the most important non-profit organizations for saving lives through prevention and early detection of cancer and other chronic diseases. It deserves the support of everyone who cares about themselves and those they love.

This is among the most outstanding non-profit organizations because the focus is on prevention of cancer and other chronic diseases and is saving many lives. Their approach is a personal one to one communication and their website illustrates how to check, when to check and how often to check to stay healthy. Their caring card shoppe is also unique for conveying a prevention message to friends, relatives and others we care about. Don't miss it. Everyone should go to the site www.selfchec.org

Self chec is an extraordinary non-profit organization. Unlike any other. Why? First, because it is focused on prevention and wellness care. Not just treatment of sickness alone. Prevention is the first line of defense for people to stay healthy. While research is important to find cures for certain illnesses, more than one million people continue to die each year from cancer and other chronic diseases, that, if caught early enough through screening and early detection, would save many lives. Right now.

Next, Self chec understands that people often neglect taking better care of themselves because they think they don't have the time or believe it won't happen to them. But it can and it does. Don't we all know someone who died from cancer or heart disease or diabetes that could have been prevented, treated and possibly cured if caught early. The approach that Self chec uses to motivate people is a one-to-one personal communication. A caring card shop on the Website allows people to send a loving message to their friends, relatives and others they care about to tell them to take better care of themselves, because "your life is important to me". An emotional connection that works.

Finally, Self chec's method to help people be more self-empowered is to send them a monthly email reminder that notifies them each month to check their bodies and get a medical check up if they detect something suspicious. Self chec is working with many organizations to create greater awareness of prevention and early detection screenings. And developing new ideas for informing and engaging people of all ages, races and economic groups to act on staying healthy. Please join us. Your life and those you care about depends on it.

What sets SELF CHEC apart is the power it gives each of us as individuals to take responsibility for our health and well being.

You can have the best cause in the world and prevention/early detection of cancer and other chronic diseases certainly ranks among them. It is also evident that a cause without a passionate advocate has no impact. I had the great fortune of meeting Joan Peckolick, Director & Founder of Self chec, some years ago. Joan’s passion, enthusiasm, energy and selflessness inspired me to become involved as an advocate for Self chec. Self chec is truly Universal Health Care at its best and most importantly, it’s FREE.

If you love anyone, including yourself, you owe it to yourself to check out Self chec!
