i love boobies!
i love boobies! is KAB’s signature breast cancer outreach and awareness program. We want to remove the shame associated with breasts and breast health, and this message represents our positive approach to breast cancer dialogue. The program resonates with young people, and encourages them to be open and active about breast cancer prevention.
The program gives young people impacted by breast cancer the chance to express and connect with others. Wearing an i love boobies! bracelet or shirt proclaims, “I love my boobies, and I choose to take care of them!” It is a message about how important it is to appreciate, respect and love your breasts and yourself. Knowing you body and your breasts is the first step to prevention.

They are the seasonal or all yearlong annoyance that we never look forward to. The itchy watery eye, sneezing, shortness of breath, and overall discomfort of allergy symptoms seems like it is for nothing, but they may be decreasing your risk for breast and other cancers.
The holidays are over and so are the family feasts and the dessert filled holiday parties. We had our fun, but now it’s time to get back to the grind and find a routine again and shed those holiday pounds.
They are the mysterious circle in the middle of our boobies. We all have them and they’re all different and that’s ok! Today we demystify the nipple by answering some common questions.
There are so many apps out there that want to help improve health, but can a mobile app really change your routine? Grad student Emery Rogers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill did a study on just that and used our Check Yourself! App as the subject to find out.
There’s been an ongoing conversation happening in the breast cancer community for a while. A conversation about whether or not checking yourself helps detect a cancer diagnosis or is even necessary for your own health. In 2009, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force pretty much recommended "against teaching breast self-examination (BSE)." Crazy, right? Here at Keep A Breast, we strongly believe that knowing your body and your "normal" is essential to your health. It's crucial to understand and be aware when something is wrong, even as a teen or young adult.
Love them, loathe them, selfies are here to stay and we’re challenging you to put them to good use. This October, The Keep A Breast Foundation wants you to join us in taking the first step in becoming your own breast health advocate. Take the #checkyourselfie pledge & commit to a self-check every month.
Keep A Breast teamed up with verynice studio and The Rare Studios to re-think the role of smart phones in breast cancer awareness and prevention. The FREE app provides a visual step-by-step overview of the breast self-exam and allows you to easily schedule an automatic monthly reminder with a pop-up text reminder.
I’m one of those people that loves boobies! and I think they are all amazing and beautiful, no matter what shape or size. TaTa Top loves boobies too, and this is why!
