About Keep A Breast: Keep A Breast is a nonprofit breast cancer awareness organization that creates one-of-a-kind plaster casts of the female torso, which are customized by fine artists and auctioned to raise funds for breast cancer research, treatment and support programs. Combining sculpture, philanthropy, and symbolic artistry, Keep A Breast's goal is to bring a fresh perspective to this important cause in a way that is relevant and inspiring to today's youth. Founded by Shaney Jo Darden and Mona Mukherjea-Gherig in 2000. Keep A Breast has traveled across the globe and staged events in France, Germany, New York, San Francisco, Hawaii, and more. Over $100,000 has been raised on behalf of Young Survival Coalition, Susan G. Koman Foundation, The Breast Cancer Fund, Asha-Killgallen Fund, Kapiolanni Breast Center, and Europadonna.
