As October winds down, and Breast Cancer Awareness Month comes to an end, we wanted to take some time out to highlight the Keep A Breast Foundation, a non-profit organization on a mission:
“…to help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support. Through art events, educational programs and fundraising efforts, we seek to increase breast cancer awareness among young people so they are better equipped to make choices and develop habits that will benefit their long-term health and well-being. “
KAB has several unique campaigns to raise awareness: the Original Keep A Breast Art Events where plaster molds of the female torso are customized by artists and auctioned to raise funding for breast cancer; the This is My Story Campaign which uses written and video testimonials of young people impacted by breast cancer to help them make connections with others and learn coping strategies; the Treasure Chest Program allows newly diagnosed women the chance to turn a cast of their torso into art; and the I Love Boobies Campaign, which is a line of t-shirts and bracelets aimed to speak to young people about a topic that can be scary or taboo to discuss.
