Familias en Acción offers a monthly Spanish speaking support group for survivors at any stage of cancer. This group offers camaraderie, compassion, and encouragement among participants, and it is based on a family centered support service. Each month participants can share and learn about different pressing issues in their lives and participate in peer based support and enjoy of activities taught by health experts like yoga, meditation, and nutrition.
Our 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
Survivors at any stage of cancer recognize the need to live their lives’ at the fullest. Our survivors and patient navigators at Familias en Acción’s support group have made it their commitment to celebrate their survivorship at each of the monthly support groups throughout the year. Our survivors have faced cancer, barriers to care or a lack thereof, 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 survivors and welcome new survivors to find support amongst them and celebrate life together.
