Hello, my name is Mia Pena.
I am a breast cancer survivor and will celebrate my 7 year anniversary on October 30, 2014.
I was stunned, scared, and very sad when I was told I had breast cancer. When I heard there were so many local people volunteering to find a cure for this disease, I wanted to help too.
I became a Peer Navigator at Salem Cancer Institute and began helping newly diagnosed breast cancer patients by giving them support, answering questions, and helping them through treatment. I have been very happy to help in this way.
I participate in many breast cancer events and Play for a Cure is one of my favorites. I am honored be a part of this great event and hope you will spread the word to your family and friends so we can continue to raise awareness in our community.
Please note that the Keizer Renaissance Inn has changed hands and is not offering special considerations for this year’s tournament.
There are still a few openings for Women’s Teams.
