Warrior Expressions Foundation was founded by a young Cancer Survivor who was driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. Our mission is to help those who have experienced hair loss by integrating mind-body healing in which we provide gifted head coverings and mentorship services. Quality of life during a cancer diagnosis, in our opinion, is very important. We strive to build everlasting relationships and make a positive impact on all of our pursuits.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS
PRESIDENT + FOUNDER
Mia Brister - Cancer Survivor
In July 2018, Mia was diagnosed with Stage 3 Hodgkin's Lymphoma and underwent 12 rounds of chemotherapy. Upon having a cancer diagnosis, one of her biggest battles was facing hair loss due to chemotherapy. In her opinion, hair is part of your identity, femininity, and sexuality. The loss of her hair made her feel like that was all taken away.
Mia founded the Warrior Expressions Foundation in 2020, in hopes that these scarves will bring some light and joy to those battling cancer.
She also strives to help bring awareness to finding inner beauty during a cancer diagnosis.
DIRECTOR OF SECRETARY
Dr. Christen Scott - Cancer Caregiver
Christen has been an entrepreneur in the health and wellness industry for over 20 years.
She runs successful psychotherapy and consulting practice and received extensive training in yoga/meditation. Dr. Scott started teaching Yoga for Cancer Survivors for the Sari Asher Integrative Cancer Care in South Florida in 2013 and has been leading these classes ever since. Dr. Scott believes wholeheartedly in the mind-body connection and views yoga and meditation as healing modalities.
Christen has also had her own personal experience with the impact of cancer, as her brother and mother are both cancer survivors.
DIRECTOR OF TREASURY
Sydney Cintron - Cancer Survivor
Sydney was born and raised in South Florida.
She is a fitness trainer and studying to become a Certified Herbalist.
The course of her life changed at twenty-five when she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy, radiation, and has been on hormonal chemotherapy for two years.
Since going through cancer, she lives by the words “Carpe Diem” because living in the present has opened her eyes to the possibilities that each day brings.
After her own experience, she felt that she had little to no help at all being a young cancer survivor. She needed to rebuild her confidence both physically and mentally.
As young cancer patients, our needs and struggles differ from others and she is striving to shed light on those needs.
Warrior Expressions Foundation is important to her because she understands the hardships throughout and after treatment.
She wants to not only help change lives but is excited to help provide a safe community for our Warriors!
Sal Messina - Cancer Caregiver
Sal is a Real Estate Agent of over 15 years, and currently working with The Keyes Company. He has lived in Palm Beach County for six years after moving from Westchester County, New York. Sal proceeded to work in the fast-paced, upscale environments of Manhattan, Westchester County NY, and Palm Beach County, FL.
Giving back has been close to his heart, starting with his time serving on the Junior Board of The Palm Beach PAL, being nominated for LLS Man and Woman of the Year, and working as a Dolphin Challenge Cancer Champion for Keyes.
Cancer is something that has had a direct and lasting impact on his life. The loss of his grandfather to Leukemia, as well as his mother having cancer twice, has only strengthened his desire to serve. He is honored to be a Director on the Board of Warrior Expressions and advance WEF’s reach within our amazing community.
Make an Impact
All money raised goes to help gift head coverings to those who have experienced hair loss due to cancer treatment. Did you know, every $25 donation helps a cancer fighter receive two head coverings as a gift.
