Story

Welcome to my fundraising page for CoppaFeel! This November I will set out on a challenging, extraordinary and life-changing trek, all in the name of checking chests! I am taking on 100km of Morocco's forbidding Sahara Desert in a bid to raise vital funds towards our life-saving mission.

I'm doing this for...

I'm doing this for all the fantastic people with boobs out there; for anyone who has ever had breast cancer, or had a loved one with breast cancer; for those who have lost their lives to breast cancer; for those who have had a breast cancer scare, and not known where to go to or been too scared to go to their GP; for my Gran, my Mam, my sister, my amazing friends and family. 

I'm doing this to empower people to check their chests and get diagnosed sooner. If diagnosed early, breast cancer can be very treatable. When diagnosed at stage 1, almost all (98%) of people with breast cancer will survive their disease for five years or more.

I'm doing this to raise awareness of CoppaFeel! - to remind people to check their chests at least once a month. Men, i'm talking to you too! 1 in 7 women will be affected by breast cancer in the UK in their lifetime and around 400 men are diagnosed every year in the UK.

People who are aware of CoppaFeel! are 40% more likely to check their chest at least once a month and in turn more likely to catch breast cancer early. Did you know you can sign up for monthly reminders to grab your melons? (https://coppafeel.org/remind-me/remind-me-sms/)

You're donating for...

Your donations will not only support my fundraising target, but most importantly CoppaFeel!. They are a charity on a mission to stamp out the late diagnosis of breast cancer by making sure that young people are regularly checking their boobs, pecs and chests and getting to know their bodies in order to have the confidence to see their GP if something just doesn't feel normal. 

  • £15 - Could buy a boob suit that will be used by a CoppaFeel! supporter to capture attention and spread our boob-checking message
  • £25 - Can allow CoppaFeel! to send 500 messages to prompt people to check their chest via our free text reminder service (don't forget to sign up at https://coppafeel.org/remind-me/remind-me-sms/)
  • £50 - Could pay for a CoppaFeel! Boobette to visit a school or workplace to share their story with young people, and get them clued up on the importance of knowing their body
  • £100 - Is enough to equip fifteen doctors surgeries with all the materials they need to share CoppaFeel's information on breast health and checking properly

Thanks so much for your donation & support. To find out more about CoppaFeel! head to www.coppafeel.org.
