Tis the season to give thanks and we want to give a BIG thank you to Jay Weinberg, ex-drummer for Against Me, for volunteering his artistic talents. Jay recently created a beautiful work of art to be displayed at future Keep a Breast Traveling Education Booth events! Jay took time while he was home from tour (in New Jersey) to design the breast cast as a tribute for those who have faced cancer.
Jay spoke to us about his inspiration, "Cancer has affected loved ones in my life. Their strength to fight and remain positive has made a big impact on me. This piece is a tribute to their inner strength.” With his continued support, we have been able to spread awareness and education to his fans for the past four years.
“I've been a big fan and proud supporter of Keep A Breast (KAB) since 2008. To me, the organization has been a staple of the music community in which I grew up. KAB’s message is so inspiring and they've done an incredible job raising awareness about breast cancer -- a subject that hits close to home for many of us. They have created a unique culture based on education, music, and art. Witnessing their dedication every day on the tours we've done together has been very powerful. I'm honored to have been able to contribute to the Keep A Breast cause and have great friends who are part of this amazing movement.
Thank you Jay for your continued support! We wish you luck in the next chapter of your career and can’t wait to get the breast cast out on the road with us in 2013.
