The Bennett Breast Care Center and WCSH-TV are joint sponsors of Buddy to Buddy, an effort to encourage women to take control of their own breast health and encourage friends to do the same.

Every month, WCSH News Center 6 broadcasts information about breast cancer, breast cancer resources, news about the latest treatments and stories of survivors. On the sixth day of every month, women are reminded to do breast self-examination and to call their “buddy” to do the same.
