Our Purpose

Our purpose is to raise awareness about cancer in the Latino community, increase access to quality care, and improve the quality of the health care experience.

Latinas Contra Cancer does this
by offering support services and resources for the Latino cancer patient and their family; collaborates with other small agencies to provide education and outreach services; and partners with health care institutions to bridge the gap through culturally competent outreach and medical care.
