Breast Cancer iPhone App Enlists Hunky Men to Remind Women About Self-Examination
By IB Times Staff Reporter | September 23, 2011 12:38 PM EST
Women can choose from six stereotypical male hunks, including the Boy Next Door, the Sports Jock, and the Business Man.
A woman's hunk will pop up on her smartphone on a regular basis and remind her to do a self-exam.
He will also offer her words of encouragement, such as "Give your breasts some TLC." TLC is breast awareness code for the words touch, look and check.
Women can even choose the pose they want their man to make. The app will also offer scheduling options for doctors' appointments and a "signs and symptoms" tab, among other conveniences.
"Young women are busy and often need a reminder to show their breasts some TLC," Rethink Breast Cancer executive director M.J. DeCoteau said in a statement. "Being aware of what your breasts regularly look and feel like is the key to early detection and what better way to remind you to check yourself than a friendly nudge from a hot guy."
