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.
CoppaFeel! strongly believe all young people should be taught about all cancers and how to lead healthy lives from a young age.
What’s their purpose?
To help everyone stand the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer by educating you on the importance of getting to know your boobs.
CoppaFeel!® exists 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.
CoppaFeel! are a very small team which, collectively, has one almighty big voice. Where they lack in experience and skills, they make up for in determination and valor. They were founded out of a need to right wrongs, and when they hear of more people diagnosed late, or young people dying from this disease, they know there isn’t a more powerful reminder to get up out of bed every morning.
CoppaFeel! is about more than discovering a cancer diagnosis. It’s about empowering ourselves to be proactive about our own health and body, as well as our outlook on life. It’s about knowing your boobs; knowing that if you do find something, you know what to do and if found early, you have many options. Put simply, breast cancer does not need to be detected late.
