Mission Hospital Valiant Women Raises More Than $50,000 to Support Breast Health Services

The Breast Health Wall of Honor recognizes breast cancer patients and survivors through a beautiful collection of tributes at The Shops at Mission Viejo.

Thanks to the generosity of the title sponsor Infiniti of Mission Viejo and hundreds of community members, the 12th Annual Breast Health Wall of Honor, held during the month of October, raised more than $50,000 to support the Mission Breast Health Center.

Throughout the month of October, the Wall of Honor recognized breast cancer patients and survivors through a beautiful collection of tributes at The Shops at Mission Viejo. The goal of the event is to create awareness for the importance of mammograms and raise funds to support diagnostic care and treatment for breast cancer.

Community members supported the Wall of Honor by purchasing honor cards in celebration or memory of a loved one and many donated mammograms for those who have no insurance and lack the means to pay. Others purchased the beautiful handmade scarves knitted by breast cancer survivors or purchased a Power of Pink bracelet from Brighton Collectibles.

To enhance awareness, Infiniti of Mission Viejo transformed the dealership into an extension of the Valiant Women Wall of Honor. Customers and staff participated by purchasing honor cards featuring personal stories celebrating survivors and honoring the loved ones lost. Employees wore pink ties, shirts and bracelets. Showroom cars were adorned with giant pink bows and the pink Geber daisy decals that have become one of the symbols of the Wall of Honor, decorated dealership walls.

Along with their title sponsorship, Infiniti of Mission Viejo donated a percentage of all service work completed in October to the Wall of Honor and raised additional money by donating $25 for each test drive completed by community members throughout the month.
