Circulo de Vida

I'm pleased to invite you to become a member of the Círculo de Vida Cancer Support and Resource Center’s Board of Directors. Founded in 1992, Círculo de Vida was the first successful Spanish-language psycho-oncology support program in the greater San Francisco Bay Area and has since been a model for psycho-oncology support programs in several cities both in Northern and Southern California. Founded on the principles of familismo (the importance of the family unit) and personalismo (the importance of warm interpersonal relationships) Círculo de Vida provides an invaluable and unparalleled service to Latino cancer patients and their loved ones as they navigate a frightening illness and an increasingly complex medical system.

The main purpose of the Board is to provide strategic leadership, manage for financial stability, serve as an ambassador for the organization, support and supervise the executive director, and to insure healthy governance. The Board meets six times per year via zoom for 1 ½ to 2 hours.

For more information, please contact Executive Director Carmen Ortiz at 415-648-9423 or at coboricua@aol.com.

Mission Statement

Crculo de Vida's mission is to walk alongside Latinos living with cancer and their families as they find their way through the fear, confusion, and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis. We aim to reduce the devastating effects of a cancer diagnosis by helping Latinos identify coping skills that will support their ability to meet the challenge of a frightening disease.

Description

Founded on the principles of familismo (the importance of the family unit) and personalismo (the importance of warm interpersonal relationships) Crculo de Vida provides an invaluable and unparalleled service to Latinos living with cancer and their loved ones - most of them immigrants, low-income, and without health insurance - as they navigate a frightening illness and an increasingly complex medical system.

Crculo's experienced staff help translate for the patient and physician at the time of diagnosis, offer in-hospital and in-home support during surgery and treatment, provide a wide range of Spanish-language support groups for the patients and their children, as well as case management, resource referrals and in-home support for the terminally ill.
