Mission Statement

To create an inclusive health care system that provides services to the underserved Latino population around issues of breast and other cancers

Description

Latinas Contra Cancer (LCC), a non-profit based in San Jose, CA was founded in September 2003 to provide critically needed, linguistically and culturally sensitive cancer related services to close the gap in the public health care system. LCC provides cancer education, patient navigation and family cancer support group along with case management, a bi-lingual website,special services such as bras, wigs and prosthesis and other supportive care to the underserved Latino community. Our goal is to encourage behavioral change and self responsibility, raise cancer awareness to increase early intervention and reduce the cancer mortality rate as well as serve families battling against this horrific but oftentimes survivable disease with early intervention and quality care.
