Mission Statement

Our Mission is Threefold:
First, to provide the tools, knowledge, and resource information needed to ensure early detection, and to provide resource information in the event of a breast cancer diagnosis.

Second, to provide support, encouragement and compassion to individuals who are battling breast cancer and their families.

Third, to work hand-in-hand with organizations such as the National Breast Cancer Coalition ( NBCC), The Lance Armstrong Foundation, the American Cancer Society and others to raise awareness and funds for research into a cure for this hideous disease. Together we do make a difference!

Description

Viva Las Chicas holds monthly awareness events, reaching out to our community on a one-to-on basis. Our goal is to educate, empower, and enlighten women and men in regards to their self care, and, if needed, their options and resources for assistance.

Viva Las Chicas assists individuals and families after a breast cancer diagnosis by providing services such as laundry, support, even supplying meals. Our survivors are willing to make a call to the newly diagnosed to answer questions or to just listen. Viva Las Chicas affirms that each family is unique and our support is individualized to meet each family’s needs.

We support and participate in events such as the LiveSTRONG Challenge, the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, BMW Drive for the Cure, Relay for Life and many more.

Viva Las Chicas hopes and prays for a world free of breast cancer. Until that day comes, we will do all that is in our power to give people the tools they need to live a long, happy, and above all healthy life.
