Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Columbia Mayor Steve Benjamin proclaimed Friday "Buddy Call 19 Day" in the city.
Benjamin stopped by WLTX for our noon newscast where he presented his proclamation. In addition to this recognition, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Buddy Call 19 is a program that News19 started 14 years ago to raise awareness and save lives through early detection. Each month, people who sign up for the program get a reminder to do their self-breast exams on the 19th of the month.
