I am VERY EXCITED to announce that I will be supporting the amazing work of CoppaFeel through the release of my new album! And here's why.
As many of you know, one of my best friends was diagnosed with breast cancer a couple of years ago, aged just 25.
This is her motto. She is a total inspiration. You can read more about her here.
I wrote the song 'Til the end' for her, and she is now in my band and singing on my album. AND doing the artwork. She really is that ace.
Anyway, she has become a 'Boobette' - who's mission is to encourage people across the UK to COPPAFEEL. Which is where I began on this tangent.
Nearly 50,000 men and women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK every year.
CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity that educates young people on the importance of checking their boobs regularly and knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer.
The charity was set up by Kris Hallenga, who was mis-diagnosed twice at age 23, and now lives with secondary breast cancer in the form of inoperable tumours.
The vision of CoppaFeel is simple....
'To live in a world where no one dies of breast cancer because of late detection or misdiagnosis.'
So CHECK YOUR BOOBS.
It might save your life.
