The College was delighted to host Sarah from CoppaFeel today, as the next talk in our Inspire Programme. Sarah volunteers for CoppaFeel as a ‘Boobette’; a group of 100 women volunteering for the charity who are under 35 and have been affected by breast cancer. Sarah spoke to students about the important work that CoppaFeel do, and spoke about her personal experience, being diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 27.
CoppaFeel work to educate young adults on the reality of breast cancer, and teach them the early signs of the disease, with the aim of early detection for all. They do this through a variety of means, one being monthly texts reminding users to check their breasts. You can access this service by texting BOOBS to 70300 – it’s free!
This talk was the second installation of our Inspire Programme, which began in September with an amazing talk from Holocaust survivor Susan Pollack. You can read more about that talk here.
We were glad to see that students who attended the talk today left feeling inspired and more informed. We are looking forward to what’s to come with our Inspire Programme!
