CoppaFeel! exists to educate, encourage and empower young people to know their bodies to stamp out late detection of breast cancer.

We equip young people with the tools and confidence to know their own bodies and to advocate for it.

About us

Who Are CoppaFeel!?

CoppaFeel! are the UK’s only youth focused breast cancer awareness charity, and we’re on a mission to get every 18-24 year old checking their chest. We educate people on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and encourage them to check their chests regularly, so that if they notice something unusual they are empowered to contact their GP and advocate for themselves. We do this because when diagnosed early, breast cancer treatments are more effective and survival rates are higher. Early detection can save lives.

Encourage, Educate, Empower

Our Mission

To ensure all breast cancers in young people are diagnosed early and accurately.

Kris' Story

"I want CoppaFeel!'s message to stick, and to keep saving lives."

CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by Kris Hallenga and her twin sister Maren, after Kris was diagnosed with incurable (stage 4 / secondary) breast cancer at the age of 23. Kris was struck by the limited information available for young people and so, CoppaFeel! was born. Read more about our history and Kris’ story.

Our Values


We believe in committed, hard work which delivers results. We are problem solvers who have proven time and time again that you can get good results from small means.


Collectively with our supporters, CoppaFeel! has a voice far greater than our size. We will always remember that together we are greater than the sum of our parts.


We’re not like other charities. We are not afraid to challenge existing ways of doing things, think in unconventional ways and experiment – all for good reason. Making mistakes is the privilege of the active.


We want to be a force for positive change and create a lasting impact on the world. We talk about a serious message in a light hearted, proactive & empowering way.
