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!
Self Chec is a great organization because the people behind it truly care about making a difference.
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 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......
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.
I can't say enough about the importance of Self Chec Inc. This non-profit brings forth such awareness about the importance of prevention in health. It is that little nudge we all need to put our wellness first. As the owner of a Pilates and Barre Studio, I work everyday to help people understand the importance of movement but it is that extra step, and that pro active attitude that can mean the difference between life and death. Kudos to Joan Peckolick for her work with this amazing organization and for making us all look a little deeper into our habits of daily living!
Self Chec is quite a bit different than most health care sites in that it focuses completely on prevention. It is easy to navigate and contains critical information for users to avoid the traps that lead to major diseases and illnesses.
The site is visually appealing, which is uncommon in this sector. It presents information in a very readable manner.
I have recommended this site to friends and and they too have enjoyed the benefits.
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.
