|Ps. We're not talking boobies not actual puppies!|
541 woman aged 18 - 35 were diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year, yet women in this age group are said to be much more likely to get an eye check than check their boobs.
We really need to get to know our boobs; as CoppaFeel states "knowing your boobs could save your life."
The cute little puppies will be posted a the beginning of every month on CoppaFeel's free app and on Cosmopolitan's Facebook, Twitter and website to remind us all to check our breasts for the signs of breast cancer.
CoppaFeel founder, and breast cancer survivor, Kristin Hellenga explained
"The idea is these guys are puppies, and you guys have puppies ... A different kind of puppies - boobies - so what better way to be reminded to check your boobs than with these cute guys?"
Louise Court, Cosmopolitan Editor added,
"With over a third of women admitting they never check their breasts, its essential that boob checking remains at the top if women's agendas. Early detection saves lives, so we're urging women to help us spread the 'Check Your Puppies' message..."
