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 the healthcare field continues to develop, the technology and resources available to prevent diseases before they happen are incredibly important. As heart disease and cancer lead in the nation's causes of mortality it is vital to have access to preventative care. This organization helps to offer people the access to preventative measures to ensure not only longevity, but a longer life of maximum quality.

As the obesity crisis and other health epidemics continue to rage in America (and beyond), a nonprofit that promotes proactive education and solutions is one to truly support. It makes me happy to see a cause like this be promoted in a tangible fashion as opposed to simple provision of false promises. Giving widespread access to help with their health should always be a core of a good healthcare association- a core that is exemplified by Self Chec Inc. Keep up the good work and good luck in the future!

Self-Chec is an incredibly important organization- spreading awareness and empowering people to keep up with their own health is not something many people think to do. As a college student, I was unaware that I need to already be checking my skin for moles and making preemptive appointments. Self-Chec encourages students like me to to be proactive about my health at a young age to avoid problems later on.

In my work as a copywriter and editor, I had the pleasure of interviewing Joan Peckolick and visiting the SelfCheck website. Seventeen years ago, Joan quit her job to devote her life to helping others prevent and survive life-threatening illnesses, including cancer. Visit selfchec.org for clear-cut information and tools designed to help you and your loved ones take more action. You can also visit the site’s Caring Card Shop and sign up for a monthly e-health reminder. This website is invaluable!

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

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.

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.
