More About CoppaFeel….
CoppaFeel are on a mission to stamp out late detection of breast cancer. They help to ensure that both women and men know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

They advocate knowing what your boobs look and feel like normally. Checking your boobs regularly throughout your lifetime and having the confidence to see a doctor if you notice anything that doesn’t feel right for you.

CoppaFeel’s main aim is to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs isn’t only fun, it could save their life. They are the first breast cancer charity in the UK to create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling a new healthy habit that could one day save their life.

Too many women, and men, die of breast cancer due to late detection. Currently over 2000 cases are diagnosed at stage 4 each year – there is no stage 5. This is unnecessary.

They strongly believe all young people should be taught about all cancers and how to lead healthy lives from a young age.

CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by Kristin Hallenga (on the right) and her twin sister Maren. Kris was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer at the age of 23. After finding a lump at 22, living abroad in China for 8 months and eventually visiting her doctor 3 times, Kris was told the news that she had incurable breast cancer. Kris was unaware that breast cancer could affect people in their twenties and knew very little about the disease. It struck her that there was very little information out there for young people, educating them about the disease, how they could be looking after themselves and informing them that breast cancer doesn’t just affect women over 50.

Although Kris will always live with cancer, she wanted to get the message out there to young people that catching cancer early means you have a higher chance of surviving and recovering. She wanted people to learn from her story and become pro-active about their own health. The idea for CoppaFeel! was born.
