Two words with significant meaning, to ‘check in’ can be in reference to several circumstances. Specific to me and the message I’m trying to advocate is to check in with yourself and essentially check in with your health, in all aspects - physical, mental, environmental etc. Understanding the importance of early detection with almost any health condition, particularly cancers, is essential and can have significantly different outcomes. I also encourage you to check in on your friends, your family, people in your community, you never know what kind of conversation you can spark and how that might impact someone you love, or even a complete stranger, and inspire them to navigate their own health battles. Checking in can save a life, if not yours, someone you’ve inspired. Start the conversation, I double dare you.
In Partnership With The Jodi Lee Foundation
It makes sense that I'm an ambassador for the Jodi Lee foundation, not just because they're a bowel cancer foundation but because quite simply we have the same goal - to raise awareness and advocate for early onset detection. The aim of using the simple, but effective and very relatable phrase 'check in' on items of clothing is to start a conversation between the legend wearing the jumper and a friend, family member and/or stranger, with the added and very important benefit of being able to raise funds in order to assist the foundation in their endeavours to educate people nationally. I'll continue to share my experience with the sinister disease, reminding everyone that they can catch it much earlier than I did, and by purchasing and wearing your jumper you can escalate the conversation with me.
