Invaluable Services to Latinos Living with Cancer


Circulo De Vida Logo Nov Community Partner

Founded on the principles of familismo (the importance of the family unit) and personalismo (the importance of warm interpersonal relationships) Circulo de Vida provides an invaluable and unparalleled service to Latinos living with cancer–most of them immigrants, low-income and without health insurance–as they navigate a frightening illness and a complex medical system. Circulo’s 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 Spanish-language support groups, as well as in-home support for the terminally ill. Circulo also provides family support to help loved ones understand their own reactions and get through the fear and grief that can paralyze families of Latinos with cancer.
