Kristin and Maren Hallenga

Twin sisters Kristin and Maren Hallenga are the founders of breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel! Following Kristin’s diagnosis with secondary breast cancer in 2009, they made it their mission to ensure other young people don’t find themselves in a similar situation to Kris; where they’re told the cancer cannot be cured because it was found late. Kristin has been tested for the known breast cancer genes but is not a carrier, yet Maren still stands a slightly higher chance of being diagnosed with the disease. These twins show continuous strength and determination, working tirelessly on raising awareness of breast cancer amongst young people throughout the UK.
