Treasured Chest Display
While the college fundraises this month, the Student Resource Center will be home to one of the Treasured Chest casts. Treasured Chest is made possible by Shaney Jo’s commitment heal through art.
“The Keep A Breast and Young Survival Coalition’s Treasured Chest Program gives any woman diagnosed with breast cancer or testing positive with the BRCA1, BRCA2 Gene an opportunity to document her body and feelings by turning her casted torso into a beautiful work of art. These unique pieces, The Keep A Breast Foundation Breast Casts™, are one-of-a-kind plaster forms that combine sculpture, charity, and artistry. They communicate complex emotions about breast health and the female form, allowing the castee to capture a specific point in her life.”
Visit the SRC, check out the Treasured Chest cast display, and pick up some information to share with loved ones about breast health. Let’s make a difference together!
