Support is essential to the cancer patient. Studies find support groups extend life and improve the quality of the treatment experience.

Education and Outreach
Latinas Contra Cancer teaches approaches to cancer health education in the Latino community using a culturally appropriate model that is linguistically sensitive.
The 2-day training program also reflects best practices, encourages economic empowerment and leadership development amongst Latino cancer survivors who train as health educators.
As language about culturally and linguistically competent services proliferates in health policy discourse and practice, a common understanding of what this means is essential to ensure quality of treatment, and assure access for the underserved.
LCC will address these issues within its training programs and in health care provider seminars.
We developed this educational tool using the popular bingo game card to teach the facts and dispel cancer myths common in the Latino population about breast cancer.
This colorful card was designed exclusively for LCC by Shivani Mishra of IMPAC Medical Systems and is legally copywrited. It's printed on the back side of a real bingo card and is available in Spanish.
