Coppafeel: knowing your boobs could save your life!

Recently, my aunt Marina was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is fighting bravely and has lost (and is regaining) her hair through chemo. She has been an absolute inspiration and a source of strength and joy in a time of pain. The thing that stands out about her..? Her sense of humor and the humorous way in which she has looked at the trials that breast cancer has thrown at her!

This mindset really reminds me of the charity that I am posting about today: Coppafeel. Coppafeel is on a mission to stamp out late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by ensuring that you know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. They do this with catchy slogans and taking a comical approach towards something that could help to save your life. They promote knowing what your boobs look and feel like normally, checking your boobs regularly throughout your lifetime and having the confidence to seek medical referral if you detect any changes.

47,700 women and 300 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK. Knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and what your boobs look and feel like normally could save your life. Start the habit of a lifetime today! You can even set a reminder for yourself to coppafeel!

To support Coppafeel, you can:
·      donate online
·      participate in a charity run
·      fundraise on behalf of Coppafeel
·      volunteer
·      spread the word
·      shop online
·      promote and attend upcoming events
