Therefore, every 3rd day of the month becomes Day 3, the regular day to check your breasts. A simple routine with a big impact. Because the better you know your breasts, the easier it is to notice changes that could indicate a tumour, for example. An Cloet, External Affairs Director at MSD: "We work daily on new cancer-fighting methods, but they’re most effective when doctors can start treatment early. That’s why prevention and early detection remain indispensable. Day 3 can really save lives."
That’s what makes Day 3 different from all previous campaigns. Thomas Driesen, Creative Director at TBWA explains: "Day 3 is not just another campaign that disappears after a few weeks. It's here to stay. We rethought the whole approach. We spread the media budget and the media plan so that from now on, women will be reminded of the self-check every 3rd day of the month through different channels." Influencers, such as Ruth Van Soom, who recovered from breast cancer herself, will from now on remind their followers of the importance of Day 3 every 3rd day of the month.
For those who want to make sure to remember it, an online reminder has been designed to make Day 3 appear in your Google, Apple or Outlook calendar every month, via one simple click. For the rest of your life. Major Belgian companies like Brussels Airlines have picked up on this and have since added Day 3 to the calendars of all their female employees, and are calling on other companies to do the same. <line about other women on LinkedIn> Countless women are also sharing Day 3 on WhatsApp by forwarding messages to their friends, sisters, mothers and colleagues.
