Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed at some point during their life and over 400 men are diagnosed every year.

CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity, on a mission to ensure that all breast cancers are caught at the earliest stage possible, making treatments more effective and survival rates higher.

coppafeel.orgWhy? Because too many people are dying from this disease and not enough people are checking their boobs. They want to instill healthy boob checking-habits from a young age by teaching every young person in the UK that knowing their boobs could save their life one day. And that it can be fun.

It was set up by Kristin Hallenga in 2009. At 22 Kristin was told she was “too young to get breast cancer”. This meant that her cancer was diagnosed late and could only be treated, never cured. Following her own experience, she has dedicated her life to making sure young people learn the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, check their boobs regularly and be confident in seeking treatment if something is not normal for them.

They pride themselves on being a constant friendly reminder, usually when you least expect it.
