Boobs, hooters, breasts and lady lumps - we all have them. But do we really know them? CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity that educates young people on the importance of checking their boobs regularly and knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

It was founded in October 2009 by Kristin Hallenga, who herself was misdiagnosed twice with breast cancer at age 23 and now lives with secondary breast cancer. Kristin and her identical twin Maren set up CoppaFeel! with the aim of stamping out late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by ensuring that people know the signs and symptoms, know what their boobs look and feel like normally, check their boobs regularly throughout their lifetime and have the confidence to seek medical referral when they detect abnormalities. 

CoppaFeel! are currently seeking dedicated student ambassadors known as Uni Boob Team Leaders. Their role is to recruit a Boob Team and be a friendly reminder to students on campus of the need to check your breasts regularly, be familiar with what they look and feel like normally and know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boob Teams will invite students to sign up to CoppaFeel!’s free SMS reminder service, which sends you a free monthly reminder to check your  boobs. It’s easy to join: simply text Boobs to 70300!

Kristin Hallenga, Founder of CoppaFeel!, said: “By educating the young people of today, we can shape the future of breast cancer survival in times to come. Knowledge is power; this power will in turn save lives. I only wish that someone shared this knowledge with me.”

Don’t just take our word for it. Surrey University’s current Uni Boob Team Leader (pictured) Jess Blake says: "I'm totally chuffed to have had the opportunity to be part of this brilliant campaign - it's not only rewarding raising awareness for such a great cause, but you have so much fun and meet some amazing people along the way!"

Now in its fourth consecutive year, the CoppaFeel! Uni Boob Team campaign is growing and this year we aim to be active at 60 universities nationwide! So no matter how big or small your university campus is, apply today to join the boob revolution and help us get your campus chatting all things boob!

Also, after completing a six-month campaign Uni Boob Team Leaders can apply to receive a Career Development Award from the Chartered Institute of Marketing. CV gold!
