HUNDREDS of schoolchildren heard how young lives could be saved by regular self-checks.

Charity campaigner Kris Hallenga gave presentations for more than 600 pupils at Henry Beaufort, Kings’ and Westgate secondary schools in Winchester.

Kris was diagnosed with terminal cancer five years ago aged just 23. Her CoppaFeel! charity encourages children to examine themselves, looking for the tell-tale lumps that can be cancerous.
