Coppafeel! Founder Kris Hallenga wrote an open letter to readers of UK’s Sun last week in light of Victoria Derbyshire’s impending mastectomy.

It’s a great message of awareness that should passed on to friends and family.

Kris founded Coppafeel! when she was 23, in the middle of her own–obviously quite surprising–battle with breast cancer.

Whenever I speak on the radio, I pretend that I’m talking to the 22-year-old Kris who knew nothing about cancer and why she should have been checking her boobs. Every word I say is loaded with hope that someone will learn a life-saving message and that they won’t find themselves in the same stupid situation I was in.
