About Us

Español | English

Latinas Contra Cancer (LCC) was founded to address the void in culturally and linguistically sensitive programs that meet the health care needs of Latinos around issues of cancer.

We are incorporated in California, based in Silicon Valley, but work to provide services nationwide. We will soon launch a Breast Health Bingo Project in New York under the direction of Jackie Ramos Calderon. She can be reached at 914.525.8593 or caldero1@optonline.net for more information.

Our website includes information for health care providers, an on-line index of cancer education materials, as well as resources and referrals to cancer related sites nationwide

LCC is a 501c.3. Federal Tax ID 56-2412069.

LCC and its Board of Directors are eternally grateful to our former fiscal agent, the nationally respected Center for Employment Training, based in San Jose, CA. CET nurtured and supported us through our initial growth, September 2003 through February 2005.

Our Mission Statement

To create an inclusive health care system that provides services to the unserved Latino population around issues of breast and other cancers.
