About Us > Mission
"It is a privilege to give back to women the type of compassionate and caring support
that I received when I was battling this disease. It is very gratifying to see the lessening of anxiety and fear — especially
with newly diagnosed
women — when they learn that I too had breast cancer. Peer support gives women hope that they too will come through this
experience." — Maria Rubio
Círculo 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.
