Event Information


In October, during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Valiant Women of Mission Hospital will partner with The Shops at Mission Viejo to host the THINK PINK Breast Health Wall of Honor. This incredible event encourages the community to honor breast cancer patients and survivors through a beautiful collection of tributes on the Wall.

Every two minutes a patient is diagnosed with breast cancer. Women in our community have a one in eight chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in their life. Breast cancer, when caught early, can be treated. Mammography is the most effective breast cancer screening procedure. Early detection saves lives.

With the generosity of the community, last year the Wall of Honor raised net proceeds of more than $80,000 to support Mission Hospital Breast Health Services and funded screening mammograms and diagnostic care for under-insured or uninsured members in our south Orange County community.

Please join us in raising funds for this year's event. Your sponsorship or donation will help us honor breast cancer survivors, remember those we have lost, and remind everyone that the fight is not over.

For information or if you have questions, please contact Jessika Abbott 949-365-3844 or

Volunteer at the THINK PINK Breast Health Wall of Honor!

Throughout the month of October, Valiant Women hosts the THINK PINK Breast Health Wall of Honor at The Shops at Mission Viejo in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Wall of Honor and our volunteers create awareness about the importance of early detection and raises funds to support the uninsured and underinsured. The community has the opportunity to honor a breast cancer patient or survivor by making a donation to list a tribute on the Wall or to underwrite the cost of a diagnostic procedure or mammogram. All proceeds go directly to the Mission Hospital Breast Health Services.

As a volunteer at the Wall of Honor, you will be answering questions about the campaign, selling tributes and THINK PINK merchandise and meeting the most amazing people honoring survivors and remembering those they have lost. During your shift, no staff will be present, so it is important that you attend one training session. Orientation sessions will be held in the Microsoft store on the second level of The Shops at Mission Viejo.

  • Tuesday, October 1 (9-10 a.m.) OR
  • Wednesday, October 2 (6-7 p.m.)

Please sign up for an Orientation session as well as your volunteer time slot via the button below. It is a very moving experience to be involved with the Wall and we're excited to have you participate!

Volunteer at the Wall
