Do you check your boobs regularly? Do you check your boobs at all, or are you someone that avoids doing so just in case you find something that feels odd?

I was never a boob checker. "Breast cancer won't happen to me" was always my excuse as I believed that breast cancer was a disease in middle aged or older women. That opinion was changed when I heard of the charity CoppaFeel! CoppaFeel! was started by Kris Hallenga, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the more unexpected age of 23. She was diagnosed at stage 4, which meant that Kris' cancer was terminal. 

It was back in 2013 that I first heard of CoppaFeel! and the Uni Boob Team. CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity. Kris and her twin sister Maren started up this little charity in order to promote breast cancer awareness in younger women, because as they know better than anyone; it can happen to us too.
