Full Story



Diagnosed with secondary breast cancer at only 23 years old, Kris Hallenga was cast straight into a blurry and unexpected chapter of her life. Determined to ensure this wasn’t to happen to other young women in Britain and just 2 months following her diagnosis, CoppaFeel! was born.

 

Kris led this unique breast cancer awareness charity with the aim to reduce the incidence of late detection or misdiagnosed breast cancer. Now in its tenth year, Kris and CoppaFeel! have successfully reached out to thousands of women in the UK and are saving lives. She is now a part-time ambassador for the charity, so when she’s not with her team of 11 at Boob HQ in London, she is on the road making new awareness projects and campaign come to life, meeting with MPs, giving talks or writing her column for the Sun.

 

The charity is responsible for some of the most daring and creative advertising campaigns in the UK, with Kris being shortlisted for Third Sector’s most admired charity CEO in Britain and presented with an honorary Doctorate from Nottingham Trent University for her services to women’s health in the UK. Some days she even finds time to have the cancer treatments that keep her here!

 

Come and hear Kris talk about her journey and this unique breast cancer awareness charity with Edinburgh Napier Chancellor, David Eustace on 29 January.

 

When: Wednesday, 29 January at 6.30pm

Where: Lindsay Stewart Lecture Theatre, Craiglockhart campus
