     The Coast Busters Walk for breast cancer is the outcome of two ladies wanting to inspire hope for other women and their families struggling with breast cancer. Recent breast cancer survivors themselves, Sonia Graham and Jeanette Campagna chose to do something good that came out of something bad. The Coast Busters Walk is a 3 mile walk that will be held on the track at Newport High School on Saturday, October 9, 2021 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Proceeds raised from the event will stay local and benefit Pacific Communities Health District Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund. This is an opportunity to proudly raise awareness in our community and to provide faith, courage, confidence, and hopefulness for all women who have been affected by breast cancer.



     We look forward to finally reuniting in person, in accordance with CDC, state, and local health guidance and regulations. As guidance and safety measures evolve in the weeks and months ahead, we will continue to update our supporters about what to expect locally. We are committed to the health and safety of all of our guests and participants and as such will make the best local decisions regarding masks, sanitizing stations, social distancing and crowd management, modified event layouts, outdoor venues and contactless engagement options onsite. These decisions will be made, and adjusted, based on the unique needs and circumstances of the local community.

Our Story
Sonia Graham & Jeanette Campagna


Sonia Graham & Jeanette Campagna
and Bella

     Sonia and Jeanette were your two ordinary, fun, laid back, everyday kind of ladies living the             beach life in Lincoln County, OR. Then one day that all changed. Both have their own individual         stories, however they share one commonality. They are recent breast cancer survivors—and that       now makes them extraordinary!                                                                                                                  

     Jeanette was diagnosed in November, 2019 following a routine mammogram. After four arduous     biopsies and further invasive testing, her best option was a unilateral mastectomy. In February           2020 Jeanette underwent surgery. Recuperating amid the start of the COVID-19 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 resulted from the surgeries. It was also       recommended that five years of cancer meds be prescribed to reduce the recurrence of any future   cancer. On February 27, 2021, Jeanette celebrated one year of 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.                                                                                           

     Although Jeanette and Sonia had a direct connection through the Newport Chamber of                   Commerce, it was their journeys that truly bonded them as friends, survivors, and sisters. They           have supported each other throughout. 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 chose to do something good that came out of something bad. It was also very               important to give back to the community that supported them so much. And it was then that the         Coast Busters Breast Cancer Walk was created.
