It's the app that's making a difference. The McGrath Foundation has announced the re-launch of the Curve Lurve app, with the aim of encouraging young Australians to be more breast aware.
The app, available on iPhone and Android devices, encourages women to do self-guided breast checks. The McGrath Foundation hopes the app will empower young people to look after their bodies, to know what's normal for them and to take action that promotes their own health and wellbeing.
Jane McGrath's breast cancer diagnosis at only 31, made her passionate about encouraging all women, including younger women (under 40), to be breast aware by regularly checking their breasts for any changes. The McGrath Foundations' breast awareness initiative, Curve Lurve, has since been developed to ensure the next generation of young Australians are breast aware and have announced the launch of their new Curve Lurve App, available for download free from iTunes and Google Play.
Tracy Bevan, who was Jane's best friend and now the Foundation's Ambassador and Director, has worked tirelessly to ensure Jane's dream becomes a reality and lives on.
'Our education program Curve Lurve aims to ensure the younger generation of Australians are breast aware and so do something that will make a difference today and ensure the people in your lives are breast aware by downloading the App and standing with us," said Tracy.
Features of the app include: Breast awareness information Self guided breast check or the ability to create your own and add notes within the app. Create and view your history Facebook login and sharing Pin-up yourself: The ability to create your own personalised Curve Lurve image Newsroom: Live Information and videos about Curve Lurve, keeping you up to date with what is happening.
