After her own diagnosis with Breast Cancer at 33, Heather Walters set about spreading awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer creating a hugely popular video of a flash mob which encouraged women and men to check themselves. Throughout the last year Heather has not only supported the charity’s message, but also set about fundraising for CoppaFeel! raising in excess of £20k to support our work.
