Vote online to help breast cancer charity Know Your Lemons win the internet’s highest honour: vote.webbyawards.com
SALT LAKE CITY, UT/ACCESSWIRE/April 12, 2022/ The Know Your Lemons Foundation announced today that it has been nominated for Best Health and Fitness App in the Apps and Software category of the 26th Annual Webby Awards. Dubbed the “internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times, The Webby Awards, presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), are the leading international awards organization for excellence on the Internet and are highly competitive. But this year’s surprise nominee is creating a lot of buzz.
“I’m just one person trying to make a difference after losing my two grandmothers and a close friend to breast cancer. I designed the app after years of developing the best way to communicate about the subject to a diverse audience,” founded a charity and said designer Corrine Ellsworth-Beaumont. “The work of our charity is funded by grants and individual donations. Now our app is compared to the caliber that Nike and Apple produce with impressive budgets and talent. It’s like the story you hear on the development of the next big thing in a garage. This recognition is important. Our little-known app saves lives and this honor is going to help save even more as the spotlight shines on our innovative work.
Lucie Cockerill in England is an example of the impact the app is having on many. She explained, “Thanks to this app, I found my lump. It saved my life!”
Kira C. in North Carolina said, “I wish I had the Know Your Lemons app when I found my lump. Even though it turned out to be nothing, I struggled to find the answers I needed. The app would have made me more confident in what to do and how to talk to my doctor.”
A lump, however, is not the only sign of breast cancer. The app explains 12 ways to introduce and guides users step by step with a personalized plan to manage their breast health. It includes a descriptive audio guide to take the guesswork out of self-examination and a risk assessment quiz that creates a personalized screening plan based on personal risk factors. The app intelligently includes a period tracker to provide precise reminders for when to do monthly breast self-exams based on a person’s breast cycle and when the perfect time is to book that annual mammogram, which can also be done in the app.
The Know Your Lemons app was created in collaboration with Atomic Jolt, a development agency in Logan, Utah. Atomic Jolt CEO Joel Duffin said, “The Know Your Lemons app puts powerful tools for early detection in the palm of your hand. It gives women – and men – more control over something than they ever wanted. ‘We were never really taught how to manage our breast health in a confident and engaging way.’
“Nominees like the Know Your Lemons Foundation are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the internet,” said Claire Graves, President of the Webby Awards. “It’s an incredible achievement to be selected as one of the best out of the 13,500 entries we received this year.”
As a nominee, the Know Your Lemons Foundation is also eligible to win a Webby People’s Voice Award, which is voted on online by fans around the world. From now until April 21thKnow Your Lemons fans can vote on vote.webby awards.com.
