Our Story
Sonia Graham & Jeanette Campagna

Sonia and Jeanette were your two typical, ordinary, fun, laid back, spirited everyday kind of ladies living the blissful beach life at the Oregon Coast in Lincoln County, OR. Then one day out of the clear blue that all changed. Both have their own individual stories, however they share one commonality. They are recent breast cancer survivors—and that’s what makes them extraordinary!

Jeanette was diagnosed in November, 2019 following a routine mammogram. After four arduous biopsies and further invasive testing that resulted in the discovery of three cancerous tumors, her best option was a unilateral mastectomy. In late February 2020 Jeanette underwent surgery. Recuperating amid the start of the COVID pandemic, she underwent reconstructive surgery in May 2020. That was followed by more than a year of physical therapy to provide more mobility to a frozen shoulder that was a result of the surgeries. It was also recommended that five years of cancer meds be prescribed to reduce the recurrence of any further cancer. On February 27, 2023, Jeanette celebrated three years being cancer free.

Sonia’s journey began in early February 2020 when she discovered a large lump in her left breast during a routine self-exam. It was confirmed to be cancerous during a mammogram, ultrasound, and biopsy all on the same day (March 26, 2020). Cancer was detected with two lumps in the breast and impacted lymph nodes. Because of the aggressiveness of Sonia’s cancer, the cancer care team suggested chemotherapy to reduce the cancer before surgery. Sonia had 16 rounds of chemotherapy beginning April 23, 2020. Following chemo, Sonia had a lumpectomy followed by a complete lymph node dissection when cancer was still detected during the sentinel node biopsy. On January 18, 2021 Sonia finished her 33 rounds of radiation therapy and was determined to be officially in remission.

Prior to their diagnoses, Jeanette and Sonia shared a direct connection through the Newport Chamber of Commerce, however it was their journeys that truly bonded them as friends, survivors, sisters, and yes, warriors. They supported each other throughout and helped each other through the healing process. During one of their many conversations they decided they wanted to make a difference in the lives of women in their own community struggling with breast cancer. They adopted the motto that "something good can certainly come from something bad." It was also very important to them to give back to the medical teams and community that provided immense support.

And it was then that the CoastBusters for Breast Cancer Walk was created!
