The Keep a Breast Foundation was formed in 2000 to address the growing need for breast cancer awareness programs to educate young people. KAB’s mission is to eradicate breast cancer by inspiring young people to adopt lifestyle choices that have long-term health benefits. “We can make the difference by raising awareness, raising people’s spirits and helping to save lives,” says founder Shaney jo Darden.
You might have seen Keep A Breast’s education booth at numerous festivals over the past decade, including the Vans Warped Tour, Country Throw Down and the Honda Civic Tour. With this new tour, KAB has essentially just taken out the middle man. But keep an eye out year round, because a KAB booth will still be at countless shows to help raise breast cancer awareness through its informative and artistic display of breast casts, information materials and interactive activities.
Many artists and musicians over the years have participated in Keep a Breast events, including Tom Delonge of Angels and Airwaves, Katy Perry, Pink, Maya Ford of the Donnas, The Foo Fighters and many more.
