With busy lives, women often forget to do self exams for breast cancer. Well, what if a handsome fellow pops up occasionally to remind them?
That’s the basic idea behind Your Man Reminder, a new smartphone app coming next month from Canadian charity Rethink Breast Cancer to mark October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Ladies can customize the free app by choosing from six “dream men” — such as the “boy next door,” the “sports jock” and the “business man” — and scheduling alerts to perform self exams delivered “by the sexy man of your choice,” the charity said in a news release.
Your virtual guy will pop up with reminders to “show your breasts some TLC” (which stands for touch, look, check). He can also be a virtual cheerleader, appearing like a smartphone genie to spout such inspirational messages as “Any guy would be lucky to have you,” the statement said. The iPhone and Android compatible app will also include information on signs and symptoms to look out for during exams.
