Who Is Keep a Breast:

Now entering their 16th year, 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. Keep A Breast 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, Keep A Breast has opened up the dialogue about breast cancer, and has proven to be a doorway to breast self-awareness and education.

The story of the The Keep A Breast Casts™ started over a decade ago, when Keep A Breast founders, then involved in their own arts organization, rallied to support a friend with breast cancer. They developed an idea to express the female experience of breast cancer by reimagining the traditional canvas as a participatory sculpture. This technique capture the female bust in a plaster and customized by artists.  The success of these breast casts is a fantastic platform for conversation starters, awareness builders, and fundraising tools ultimately led the creation of the non-profit The Keep A Breast Foundation.
