Want to learn more about Keep A Breast?Their mission: to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support. The foundation was launched in 1999, when Founder Shaney jo Darden and her friend, Mona, learned their young friend and artist, Margaret Kilgallen, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. The two women were committed to raising awareness in support of her, but nothing resonated with the creative energy of their community. They decided to stick with a model of bringing people together through progressive art, according the KeepABreast.org. The result was Keep A Breast, a unique art concept developed to capture and communicate the physical and emotional challenges of breast cancer. Visit: https://keep-a-breast.org/
