(WZZM) -- It was over 15 years ago that WZZM 13 started our monthly reminders. On the 13th of every month remind your Friend for Life to do a monthly breast self exam.
On October 13, 1998 Valerie O'Brien of Muskegon saw our Friends for Life message and did her very first breast self-exam.
It changed her life.
Watch the video above to hear Valerie's story.
