This incredible charity deserves so much more credit than what they receive. They do amazing work in order to raise awareness for breast cancer, reminding people to check their boobs at least once a month and helping them to know what they need to look out for. The charity talks about the seriousness of breast cancer, but in a light-hearted way, encouraging young people to get to know their bodies in the hope that all breast cancers can be diagnosed and treated at the earliest possible stage.
I was introduced to this wonderful charity via my doctor’s surgery when a nurse encouraged me to sign up to CoppaFeel’s monthly text messaging service…
CoppaFeel send out monthly text messages to remind people to check their boobs, but in a fun kind of way! I often forget that I am signed up to this service, so when I receive my monthly reminder it makes me smile/giggle as well as reminding me to do something that is very important… checking my boobs!
Here are some of my most recent reminders:
‘STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! Checking your boobs could save your life. And it is proper fun. Got it? START WHAT YOU WERE DOING AGAIN.’
‘DON’T CHECK YOUR BOOBS. DON’T DO IT. NO, REALLY – DON’T DO IT.
– A lesson in reverse psychology from CoppaFeel.
Knowing your boobs could save your life, so get to it!’
As you can see, these reminders are quirky yet at the same time, life-saving! If you would like to sign-up to their monthly text messaging service, you can do so here! (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO!) – You can also sign-up for regular emails if you prefer!
CoppaFeel runs various campaigns including #RethinkCancer, which raises awareness for all types of cancer and building up people’s knowledge as well as encouraging them to lead healthy lives.
This incredible charity relies on donations so that they can continue with their amazing work, going to schools, places of work and attending other events as well as enabling them to continue sending their monthly text messages (a £5 donation enables CoppaFeel to send 100 text messages, which could potentially save lives!)
There are many ways in which you can raise money and awareness for CoppaFeel! Take a look at their fundraising page here to find out more.

Whatever you decide, just make sure to check your boobs regularly!
