CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by Kris Hallenga and her twin sister Maren, after Kris discovered she had breast cancer at the age of 23 years old. Their work focuses on awareness of breast cancer in young people. Early detection is so crucial in helping young people fight breast cancer.
Their work reaches young people in schools, university, festivals and at many fund raising events. They work tirelessly and creatively, finding fun and quirky ways to educate young people.
This charity speaks to us as we have six children between us, from 13 to 21 years old. This charity will hopefully help in educating ours and countless other young people in the awareness of the warning signs of breast cancer.
