What is Buddy to Buddy?


 

Buddy to Buddy is a program that encourages all women to take control of her own breast health and inspires her "Buddy" to do the same.  Choose a "buddy"... a friend, family member or co-worker. 

 

Every month, WLBZ  NEWS CENTER 2  anchors will bring you comprehensive reports and information about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. 

 

Every woman is at risk for breast cancer.  The facts are that one woman in eight will likely develop breast cancer in her lifetime.  The good news is that early detection can significantly increase the likelihood of survival.  Luckily there is a  growing awareness of the importance of monthly breast self exam, of regular visits to the doctor, and depending on her age and health history, yearly mammograms.  See more information on Breast Cancer here.



We will share WLBZ's Buddy to Buddy videos, articles and posts to help encourage you to do your monthly self exams and to encourage your family members and those you care about to perform them as well.

Here are the most recent articles and videos from WLBZ's Buddy to Buddy program:

Buddy to Buddy: Small Hands, Big Heart

LINCOLN, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- Breast cancer has affected the lives of so many people in Maine, including young children, who often watch loved ones struggle with treatment and cope with the disease.

One little girl from Lincoln decided that instead of being a bystander, she would take action. At age seven she has already raised more than $600 dollars for Susan G. Komen for the cure, and she is not ready to stop yet.

NEWS CENTER's Jessica Gagne has Olivia Ubanski's story in this month's Buddy to Buddy segment here: http://www.wlbz2.com/buddytobuddy/article/270030/23/Buddy-to-Buddy-Small-hands-big-heart.

WLBZ covered the University of Maine women's basketball team's Play 4Kay game this past Sunday. The team raised $13,585 for the Kay Yow Foundation to support breast cancer research. Coach Richard Barron, who dyed his hair pink for the game, made good on his promise to shave his head if the team met its goal of $10,000. Play4Kay is named after Yow, a longtime North Carolina State women's coach who died of breast cancer in 2009.

Buddy to Buddy: Basketball team helps raise money for breast cancer research

ORONO, Maine (NEWS CENTER)-- For the last two years, the UMaine women's head basketball coach, Richard Barron, has shaved his head as an incentive for fans to donate to breast cancer research. This year, he is at it again.

Barron says If the team raises over $10,000 for the Play for Kay cancer fund by February 9th, he will shave his head. And this year, he has added a twist, if the money is raised before the team's game against Binghamton, he will dye his hair pink before the game. Coach Barron feels its the least he can do to help put an end to breast cancer.

Sugarloaf Snowcat Spreading Breast Cancer Awareness

CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- If you've hit the slopes at Sugarloaf lately, you've likely seen the newest addition to their grooming fleet: a pink snowcat.

Pinky, as she's known by some, was meant to bring more awareness to breast cancer as she grooms the snow, but she's also inspiring donations to local cancer foundations.

Pinky is adorned with the well-known pink ribbon and the names of local cancer centers that are funded by one of Sugarloaf's biggest fundraisers of the year: the Sugarloaf Charity Summit.  All proceeds from the events all day and night benefit the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center and the Maine Cancer Foundation. Click here for more information.
