Are you considering becoming part of a board?

Consider Circulo de Vida Cancer Support and Resource Center in San Francisco. Circulo de Vida provides Spanish-language psycho-oncology services to Latinos living with cancer and their families--most of them low-income immigrants--as they navigate a frightening illness and a complex medical system.

A primary responsibility of board members is to participate in the development of policy and major decision-making at board meetings held six times a year. If you have fundraising or event planning experience, we would love to hear from you.

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.
