CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by Kris Hallenga and her twin sister Maren. After noticing a lump in her boob and repeatedly visiting her doctor, Kris was eventually diagnosed with incurable breast cancer, aged just 23. Unaware that breast cancer could affect people in their twenties and armed with little knowledge about the disease, it struck Kris & Maren that there was a significant lack of information out there for young people.
Since then CoppaFeel! has been dedicated to educating young people on the importance of checking their boobs regularly and the signs and symptoms of breast cancer everywhere from workplaces to shower cubicles, university campuses to Instagram.
Every summer they hit up the UK’s biggest festivals and events armed with temporary tattoos, awareness materials and giant boobs on a mission to educate the masses with their life saving message. This year their Boobmobile, Belinda, is back at Bestival with more boob themed tattoos, glitter and bra making workshops. Learn how to make a sparkly, tassel tastic bra, get to know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and walk away with a handy reminder to check your boobs!
