Avon Check Yourself campaign
You spend a lot of time checking.
You check your text messages, emails and social media status updates.  You check the weather, sports scores and TV listings.  You check your stock prices and bank account balance, the gas level in your car, your outfit, hair and makeup.

Now, Check Yourself!
#CheckYourself is an Avon movement that aims to raise awareness and start conversations about how women and men can take action for their own breast health through screening, detection and treatment.  Screening guidelines vary by country and media reports about early detection can sometimes be confusing.  This campaign is intended to help you better understand some of the common factors that can influence your personal breast cancer risk, and teach you not only about your risk, but also what actions you can take starting today!  Get inspired by our Check Yourself dance video starring CELEBRITIES, and spread the word on social media to as many women and men as possible.


Walk with Avon as we work to save more lives through education and awareness.
