CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer charity set up by Kris Hallenga, who, at the age of 26 lives with secondary breast cancer.
One in nine women in the UK will suffer from the disease. But mammograms and breast screening messages are targeted primarily at women aged 40-plus.
Cancer isn’t fussy about age, so CoppaFeel!’s primary goal is to raise awareness among young people, ensuring they check their breasts regularly, know the symptoms of breast cancer and have the confidence to seek professional help, should concerns arise.
