Familias en Acción offers a monthly Spanish speaking support group for patients and families experiencing a chronic illness and survivors of cancer. This group meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1pm and offers camaraderie, compassion, education and encouragement among participants. The whole family is welcome to attend the meeting.
Our family support group provides support and education about the following:
- Nutrition classes and food safety
- No cost fitness activities for home and family
- Depression and anxiety
- Skills for patient engagement
- Information about healthcare reform
- How to manage a chronic illness
- How to manage the side effects of cancer treatments
- Many more topics
Persons experiencing a chronic illness and survivors of cancer recognize the need to live their lives’ at the fullest. Our patient navigators at Familias en Acción’s support group have made it their commitment to celebrate health and survivorship throughout the year. Our clients have faced serious illnesses, barriers to care, deportation, unemployment, discrimination and have still found refuge in their spirituality to survive and live at their best. They have made Familias en Acción’s support group a refuge and safe haven for their fellow members and welcome new people to find support among them and to celebrate life together.
Every second Saturday of the month from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
