About Feel Your Boobies®
Feel Your Boobies® was founded in 2004 after our Founder, Leigh Hurst, was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. She found her lump simply by “feeling her boobies”, not through a formal self-breast exam. What originally started as a few fun t-shirts she designed to remind her friends to “feel their boobies”. She quickly realized that her mission was much larger than tshirts alone. Since that realization, the Feel Your Boobies Foundation’s “Are You Doing It?” Reminder Campaign has become an international media campaign that focuses 100% on using unexpected & unconventional methods to spread this life saving message to young women.
