Breast cancer is horribly common, I can think of more than 10 people I know that have been personally affected by breast cancer, and that didn't even require that much thought. Some have been lucky enough to catch it early, I say lucky - they've still have to go through months of their lives being turned upside down with chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hair loss, boob loss, and a million other crap things that come with having cancer. Others though, went through all those traumatic experiences and they couldn't be saved. Mothers, daughters, grandmothers, aunties, cousins, friends; we can go some way to save those closest to us if we educate society. Late diagnosis means that treatments are less likely to work, so CoppaFeel! are doing fabulous things to raise awareness of breast cancer so that we remember to check our boobs. If we check our boobs regularly we are more likely to catch breast cancer sooner, early diagnosis means lives can be saved.
So what am I doing?
In August I'm hiking almost 60km across Iceland's active volcano territory with a group of members of the public, founder of CoppaFeel! Kris Hallenga, Chloe Madeley, and Vicky Pattison.
I've never done anything like this before, and I am mildly terrified that I won't make it to the end!
Please donate what you can and help CoppaFeel! continue the fantastic work they do, every pound helps them to educate people and ultimately save lives. Thank you.
