Buddy Check 9

Presented by
Buddy Check9 has been a part of 9NEWS for more than 20 years.

The idea behind the Buddy Check9 program is quite simple. On the 9th of every month, we ask women to do a monthly breast self-exam and then call their "buddy" to remind her to do the same. Their buddy can be a family member, colleague or friend. Hundreds of women have found lumps; the majority of them are not malignant. Our hope is that cancer is discovered in its early stages, when it is most treatable.

University recycling program keeps 35 tons out of landfills

DENVER - In a matter of a few weeks college students will return to campuses in Colorado.

Because of a partnership between five universities in Colorado and Goodwill Industries, far fewer of those items are ending up in landfills.
