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 Guillermina, 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 Guillermina and her daughter share their story and the impact that our Patient Navigator, Olga, has had on their 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.
Guillermina describes her relationship with Olga: “She said, ‘I’m going to be with you… I will be there with you.’ She accompanied me to everything. At the hospital, she met all my brothers, then went to my house because she wanted to talk to my children. She told them what it was that I needed. She said that I needed to be supported a lot. She told them…’if you want to give her a present, do not give her gifts, give her love…'”
Familias supports many families with stories like Guillermina’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 Guillermina to navigate treatment and survive breast cancer!
