This summer we embarked on a 51-day punk rock tour on the +Vans Warped Tour and asked young people what they thought of the personal care and cosmetics industry, and about their daily cosmetics routine. How many products do you use daily? #health   #cosmetics  
The past 15 summers, we traveled across the U.S. to educate young people on breast cancer prevention education on Vans Warped Tour. This summer was extra special because we partnered with Breast Cancer Fund and Clean Water Action to create a survey that asks young people, from 14-24, what they think of personal care and cosmetics industry, and about their daily cosmetics routine. How many products do you use daily? Do you have any concerns about ...

"The study found that women exposed to high levels of DDT before birth had four times the chance of breast cancer before the age of 52 than women who were not." #breastcancer   #health  
Though the pesticide DDT was banned in the US in 1972, its effects in the human body may live on. New research has found the strongest link yet between exposure to DDT in the womb and the likelihood of breast cancer later in life.

One thing I like about myself is my smile, and strangely enough that is the one thing I get compliments on and you know what? I really love to smile. Just by smiling, I feel happier.

People with environmental and contact allergies are thought to have a more responsive immune system, not only reacting to common allergens, like dust, pollen or nickel, but also more serious threats, like cancer cells. #breastcancer   #allergies  
Seasonal and contact allergies are often viewed as more of a curse than a blessing, but research suggests that there could be a silver lining. People with environmental and contact allergies are thought to have a more responsive immune system, not only reacting to common allergens, like dust, pollen or nickel, but also more serious threats, like cancer cells. Since allergic reactions are simply our immune system overreacting to a benign compound,...

Even more important to talk to young women at an early age. #breastcancer #health 
By 2030, the number of women expected to develop breast cancer will increase by about 50 percent, according to a new study. Currently, one in eight women will develop the disease at some point in her lifetime.

There are plenty of things we can do to help us lead overall healthier lives AND help prevent a gradual weight gain that could increase our risk of breast cancer as we get older. Boosting your metabolism is one way to do it! #health  
Maintaining a healthy weight does a lot more than keep you looking good for swimsuit season, it can help lower your risk for many health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer, and respiratory problems. Society today thrives on a fast paced, high intensity work environments that can make it tough to really take care of us. We often skip a meal because we are tight on time or turn to process foods for a quick...

Helping eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support. Prevention is the Cure!
Introduction
MISSION

The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is the leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization. Our mission is to eradicate breast cancer for future generations. We provide support programs for young people impacted by cancer and educate about prevention, early detection, and cancer-causing toxins in our everyday environment. The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is headquartered in the United States as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. We are supported in fulfilling our mission by international partners Keep A Breast Canada, Keep A Breast Europe, and Keep A Breast Japan.

HISTORY

In 2000, Shaney jo Darden and Mona Mukherjea-Gehrig founded The Keep A Breast Foundation in response to the growing need for breast cancer awareness programs to educate young people. With their expertise in fashion design, photography and event production, Darden and Gehrig created an awareness campaign like none other by harnessing the power of art to communicate complex feelings and thoughts about health, the female form and ultimately about breast cancer. Combining sculpture, philanthropy, and symbolic artistry, the pair launched a series of art benefits exhibiting one-of-a-kind plaster forms of the female torso, customized by artists and auctioned to raise funds for breast cancer programs all over the world. A 501c3 nonprofit organization, Keep A Breast has produced fundraising events across the US, Canada, Australia and Europe on behalf of charities such as The Young Survival Coalition, Europa Donna and The Breast Cancer Fund.The success of these art benefits put breast cancer awareness on the map for a younger generation, and in 2004 Keep A Breast realized that was only half the battle. To further its mission to prevent breast cancer, KAB launched a series of education and awareness programs. These unique campaigns use art and artistic expression to inform young people about methods of prevention, early detection, coping and support. Through these programs Keep A Breast strives to eradicate breast cancer by inspiring young people to adopt lifestyle choices that have long-term health benefits. Some of today’s most progressive artists, athletes and celebrities have participated in Keep A Breast events, including Shepard Fairey, Dita Von Teese, pro surfers Lisa Anderson and Layne Beachley, musicians Tom Delonge of Angels and Airwaves, Katy Perry, Pink, Maya Ford of the Donnas, The Foo Fighters and many more. Relying on support from partners and dedicated volunteers, Keep A Breast continues to spread its inspiring message through music and other channels in hopes of making a positive impact on the lives of future generations. “We are often struck by the absolute and overwhelming feeling that the work Keep A Breast is doing is important. We can make the difference by raising awareness, raising people’s spirits and helping to save lives,” says Shaney jo.
