Who are the Boobettes?

Our Boobettes are a team of volunteers who have all been affected by breast cancer in some way between the age of 18 – 35. They have either had a breast cancer diagnosis, and may still be undergoing treatment, or have a personal experience – whether that’s a genetic connection to the disease, a breast cancer scare, preventative surgery or a close connection to the disease through family or friends. Using their stories, they inspire others to think differently about their lives and bodies, educating people about the importance of getting to know your normal now, and making it a lifelong habit.

What does a Boobette do?

Boobettes visit schools, colleges, youth groups, workplaces and community groups – either virtually or in-person – to deliver educational talks that encourage people to cop-a-feel regularly and start healthy habits for life.

You’ll deliver our lifesaving message in a lighthearted way to inspire people to think differently about their lives and bodies. You’ll share your personal connection to breast cancer, CoppaFeel!’s breast awareness message and the importance of getting to know your chest, to audiences of varying sizes.

The role is flexible around your life and location and you can choose to volunteer when it suits you.

“I chose to become a Boobette because I think it helps other people understand that it can happen to someone who looks like me. The main thing I take away from it all is that I could essentially save somebody’s life.”
Zoe, Boobette
