Radar met with the new RGU Uni Boob Team who represent CoppaFeel – the only breast cancer charity in the UK purely aimed at young people to educate them about the importance of being breast aware and checking your body. 

The Boob team’s vision is for everyone to have the best possible chance of surviving breast cancer. This means they exist to encourage you to check your boobs regularly, educate you on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and lastly, empower you to seek advice from a doctor if symptoms persist.

They ask you to LOOK for changes in skin texture for example puckering, dimpling, swelling in your armpit and around your collar bone. They also advise you to LOOK for nipple discharge or nipple inversion, changes in direction and sudden change in size or shape. Finally they ask you to LOOK for any rashes or crusting of the nipple or surrounding area. They also ask you to FEEL for lumps or any thickening of the breasts and any unusual pain, including in the armpits. CoppaFeel say 'If in doubt, get it checked out'.

Their current campaign is ‘Trust Your Torch’ which is all about getting people to normalise the habit of checking their boobs and ensuring it becomes part of their daily routine, just as much as brushing your teeth! The way the team aim to promote this is by celebrating how amazing our hands are; what they get up to and how sensitive they can be.

RGU Uni Boob Team Leader, Shae, a Contemporary Art student, said she was very passionate about discussing issues that aren’t the norm to talk about.

She also added that she knew it “would be a fantastic way to meet new people, educate others and be part of something super rewarding”

She went on to say that “We hope to run bake sales, fashion shows, film nights, club takeovers and other fundraising events to raise money for CoppaFeel!'s amazing work throughout the academic year.”

CoppaFeel are always looking for new ambassadors to join the Uni Boob Team and help spread the word! If you’re interested in helping support this cause, get in touch with @rgu_ubt on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. You can also get in touch on the RGU Uni Boob Team page.
