The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.

Since our inception in 2000, KAB has worked with young people to remove the shame associated with breasts and breast cancer health. Through various initiatives such as breast cast art exhibitions, the Non Toxic Revolution and "I love boobies!" campaign, KAB has opened up the dialogue about breast cancer, and has proven to be a doorway to breast self-awareness and education.

Keep A Breast has grown into the leading global youth-based breast cancer prevention organization, with global affiliates in Japan, Canada, France, UK and Chile. Constantly pushing the boundaries of the pink ribbon status quo, Keep A Breast has always encouraged young people to love their boobies, get to know their bodies and be aware of changes.

"We know you can’t always give a donation, so we wanted to give you some easy ways that you can help spread the word about your favorite cause and still give money while buying things you need!"

Sugar has been linked to many diseases and disorders, but the role of sugar in breast cancer has yet to be determined, until now. A new study has gone deeper into the relationship of sugar and breast cancer development, and our new blog has the run down of what they know so far.

"Here’s the deal, products that contain potentially harmful carcinogens generally contain a small amount, but when we compound our bodies with several products that contain that small amount, and use them every day, that so-called “safe” amount becomes a little more complicated."

Diagnosed women will likely face dramatic changes, both physical and emotional, on their #breastcancer journey. Through the Keep A Breast and Young Survival Coalition’s Treasured Chest Program, we give any woman diagnosed with breast cancer an opportunity to document her body and feelings, by turning her casted torso into a beautiful work of art.

We've always believed that #art heals and transforms lives! It's our goal to continue to directly support women diagnosed with breast cancer for the next 15 years but we can't do it without you!

Help us continue to directly support women diagnosed with breast cancer by becoming a $15 monthly donor!

Introduction
MISSION

The Keep A Breast Foundation™ is a nonprofit organization with a mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.

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, Keep A Breast Chile 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.
