For those who missed the Keep a Breast booth we were there presenting our "I Love Boobies" Campaign. This is a unique international campaign that develops a new approach and positive style of communication about breast cancer.
The campaign is meant to encourage young people to target their breast health. The t-shirts and bracelets act as an awareness-raising tool, allowing young people to engage and start talking about a subject that is scary and taboo and making it positive and upbeat.
