Our Mission

Self Chec is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is using emotional connections to help save precious lives by raising awareness of the importance of early detection and preventative actions that help keep us healthy from cancer, heart disease, diabetes and obesity; chronic diseases that often, unnecessarily take the lives of some of our loved ones much too early. 

 

Our Motivation

Empower people to:

Take control of their own health

Reduce health risks that are often preventable or treatable

Facilitate healthy habits and conversations

Confront difficult health subjects for themselves and loved ones
