One of Fashion Bust’s favourite ladies is to appear in a special BB3 documentary on 26 March at 9pm.
Kris Hallenga, founder of breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel!, can be seen in Dying to Live, which tells the story of her strength, passion and sheer will to live her life with breast cancer while helping prevent others going through the same thing.
Kris was diagnosed with incurable breast cancer at the age of just 23, but instead of giving up she channelled her fear and anger into helping to prevent the late diagnosis and misdiagnosis of the disease by setting up CoppaFeel! The charity’s aim is to raise awareness of the signs and symptoms of breast cancer in younger women and instil the potentially life-saving habit of regular checking breasts from a young age.
The film documents her life-changing and life-enhancing cancer journey and the way she has fought against public ignorance to ensure that doctors and young women are more aware of breast cancer and can find it – and beat it – early.
So tune in to BB3 at 9pm on 26 March and watch Dying to Live about a very inspirational young woman.
