Keep A Breast Foundation

Share

Shaney jo Darden, is the co-founder of The Keep A Breast Foundation.

After a close friend was diagnosed with breast cancer at an early age, Shaney was motivated to expose young women to methods of prevention, early detection and support through the use of art and artistic expression.

Their Treasured Chest Program gives women who are diagnosed with breast cancer an opportunity to document their journeys with a hand-made plaster form of their torsos, which they hand paint as a part of their therapy. As well as occasionally, the foundation will cast athletes, musicians, and actors and pair them with artists such as Shepard Ferry, Nick Walker, and Dalek to help raise funds.

Take a moment to check out the beautiful casts and help spread the word.
