Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and CoppaFeel! charity

Posted on October 21, 2014 by Charlotte Sparks

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the perfect time for us to tell you our news… we’re supporting CoppaFeel! 

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 
400 men are diagnosed every year
It takes less than 5 minutes to check your boobs
The earlier it’s found, the more likely you’ll live a long and brilliant life.
55,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
Nearly 12,000 people in the UK die every year from breast cancer.

For every Sweetheart Nursing Tee we sell, we will donate £2 to CoppaFeel! And not just during October, we will be continuing to do so as for as long as stocks last.

Sweetheart Nursing Tee £26.00 Coral, Lagoon Blue, Navy, Black or White.

Our aim is to raise awareness and funds for CoppaFeel! by reaching an audience of women like you who openly discuss breasts. We want to inspire you to pass along the benefits of breastfeeding & breast checking to your peers and daughters as a healthy normal practice so that any signs of breast cancer can be detected early, making treatments more effective and survival rates higher. 

CoppaFeel! is a charity which proactively educates 18- 30 year old female Britons, in a fun way, to check their boobs for the early signs of breast cancer 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.

CoppaFeel! was set up by Kristin Hallenga in 2009. At 22 Kristin was told she was “too young to get breast cancer”. This meant that her cancer was diagnosed late and could only be treated, never cured. Kristin lives with secondary breast cancer and runs the charity full-time.

The CoppaFeel! mission is to make sure all breast cancers are diagnosed at the earliest stage possible making treatments more effective and survival rates higher. 

Meet Kristin here as she accepts her Pride of Britain Award in 2009 and understand why we’re supporting her charity CoppaFeel!

This week we’ll be sharing some stories about breastfeeding after breast cancer and headlining our support for CoppaFeel!
