Check Your Chest

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! 

Unfortunately, anyone can have breast cancer because everyone is born with breast tissue. Did you know that it’s estimated that each year more than 2000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer? 

#CheckYourChest is a multi-campus campaign aimed at raising awareness of breast cancer and encouraging students to check their chests, whilst raising money for Coppafeel because prevention is always easier than a cure.  

As part of this campaign, we’re hosting Drop-In sessions on every campus for anyone who would like some information on how to use the CoppaFeel Self Checker and advice on where to go for more information around Breast Cancer. We will also be launching a how-to video guide on how to check your chests properly and we are even turning VIBE pink this week!
