Pink Out Loud with Paul Mitchell
As we all know, every October the beauty industry goes pink for breast cancer in Breast Cancer Awareness month. Various brands and companies give to different breast cancer charity and Paul Mitchell will give to the CoppaFeel! charity this year for the second year running.
Kris Hallenga was diagnosed with breast cancer atthe age of 23 in 2009. Since then she has been tireless in her efforts to raise awareness among younger men and women about the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and set up the CoppaFeel! charity.
Paul Mitchell is supporting breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel! for a second year, because they believe that #BOOBSDESERVE looking after.
CoppaFeel! exists to educate and remind every young person in the UK that checking their boobs could save their life. CoppaFeel! is the first breast cancer charity in the UK to create awareness amongst young people, with the aim of instilling a new healthy habit that could one day save their life.
From her incredibly frank and inspiring BBC documentary aired twice in 2014; ‘Kris: Dying to Live’, to a high profile campaign with celebrity photographer Rankin, support from celebrities including Fearne Cotton, Dermot O’Leary and Greg James, to countless events and magazine interviews: Kris and her sister Maren are determined to educate as many people as possible to try and catch this disease early.
Earlier this year, Kris had a role in the BBC drama The C Word that charted Lisa Lynch’s life with cancer. Lisa was a friend of Kris, and was played in the drama by Sheridan Smith, who is patron of the charity.
“I’m really excited about being a patron for CoppaFeel!,” Sheridan says. “I love my boobs and check them regularly and now I get to ensure everyone else does too.
“Playing the amazing Lisa Lynch in The C Word opened my eyes to the realities of having breast cancer. Everyone should stand the best chance of surviving this crappy disease so I am a fully-fledged boob team member and here to remind you to get to know your boobs. So, off you go!”
