Our original Ambassador - sharing her story and inspiring action.
Kassia Meador has a smile that lights up any room or surf lineup. Not only has the queen of stoke been a RAEN Ambassador since day one, Kassia is also a passionate activist for the Keep A Breast Foundation, having dealt with the devastating cancer that her mother experienced when Kassia was just 18 years old. As part of our latest collaboration celebrating the 20th anniversary of KAB, we wanted to share her story and give her a platform to spread the KAB mission to empower young people around the world with breast health education and support.
Upon finding out her mother’s diagnosis, Kassia found herself frustrated and unsure how to help her mother. During that time, she stumbled across KAB and they provided a positive way for her to join a community, spread their message, and do something to help her mom. Thanks to early detection, her mother recovered without the need of chemotherapy - but that didn’t stop Kassia from pushing forward.
Since her time with the organization, she has worked closely with KAB on events and activations to help raise money and awareness - from their signature breast casts to just getting the word out about education and early detection. “Early detection is paramount,” says Kassia, who 20 years later is still involved with KAB and working with them to educate young women to take care of their own bodies and “empower them to support each other and their community.”
“If there’s one piece of info I want you to walk away with, it’s about education and spreading the message,” adds Kassia. “If we are mindful and aware of our bodies, hold space for ourselves and one another, then we can all come together and support each other.”
