Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our 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 assisting Latinos in identifying coping skills that will assist them through the various stages of their illness, and support their ability to meet the challenge of a frightening disease.

Description

In the field of cancer, many of the inroads to increasing language-specific psycho-oncology support in the San Francisco Bay Area can be directly attributed to Circulo de Vida (CDV). CDV provides an invaluable service to Latinos living with cancer and their families, most of them immigrants, low-income, and without health insurance, as they navigate a frightening illness and an increasingly complex medical system.
