ABOUT

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 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!

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

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.
