Breast cancer prevention through art, education, awareness & action 

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.

Why is it important? 

Besides skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among American women. It accounts for nearly 1 in 3 cases of cancer. Today, about 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime – that’s 12% of women born today that will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime (that’s enough to fill almost 5 stadiums full of people!).  With only 10% of breast cancer diagnosis due to family history, most cancer cases can be prevented through the adoption of healthy lifestyle practices.

How do they do it?

Through creative outreach and awareness programs, Keep A Breast (KAB) is inspiring and educating young people to adopt preventative lifestyles that support breast health.

Progress so far?

They have distributed 141,833 pieces of educational materials since 2012 in five countries and 245 cities. They have also distributed critical education through its app: 32,000 downloads since 2010. Lastly, they have supported 383 survivors directly with a Treasured Chest Kit.

Supporters you may know:

Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Jason Mraz, Foo Fighters, Iggy Pop, Dita Von Teese, and Devo


They do not have local partners however do partner with the Young Survival Coalition for its Treasured Chest program that supports newly diagnosed women.
