Make a difference and give to Familias en Acción.
During the season of giving, we take the opportunity to share stories of the Latino families that we serve every day of the year. We rely on fundraising to support patients, like Elvia, and her family. Patient Navigators provide support and empower their patients to speak up and take action to educate themselves about their health condition.
Please take a moment to watch Elvia share her story and the impact that our Patient Navigator, Olga, has had on her experience from diagnosis through treatment of breast cancer.
When we ask patients to describe their experience with cancer and chronic disease, they describe the positive and invaluable impact that their navigator has had on their health.
Elvia describes her relationship with Olga: “Olga began to help me, she accompanied me to the appointments …. Olga helped me understand what the doctor said sometimes. Sometimes I would tell her… I want to say this, so she said, ‘later when we go to the appointment you can ask’ or she reminded me of other things to ask.“
Familias supports many families with stories like Elvia’s. Please give generously this holiday season to help us care for these families! Your gift will make a difference in their lives.
Your gift will provide support to women struggling like Elvia to navigate treatment and survive breast cancer!
