Mission Hospital Valiant Women Host the 13th Annual Breast Health Wall of Honor


Every two minutes a patient is diagnosed with breast cancer and women have a one in eight chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

Mission Viejo, CA – Throughout the month of October, Mission Hospital Valiant Women will host the Annual THINK PINK Breast Health Wall of Honor to create awareness for the importance of mammograms and raise funds to support diagnostic care and treatment for breast cancer.

This event encourages community members to honor breast cancer patients and survivors through a beautiful collection of tributes on the Wall of Honor, located near Nordstrom at The Shops at Mission Viejo.

Valiant Women is thrilled to welcome Volvo Mission Viejo and Infiniti of Mission Viejo as this year’s title sponsors and thank The Shops at Mission Viejo for their ongoing support.
