SPANISH CANCER SURVIVOR SUPPORT GROUP

A companion program is our “Triunfadoras” group, a cancer survivor support group for Hispanics women, their families, and caregivers. The program started in 2002 with eight patients and today we have 540 members. “Triunfadoras” is the only culturally-sensitive, Spanish-language, on-going cancer support group in Utah.

A Spanish cancer support group for Hispanics women, their families and caregivers along the Wasatch Front.

As you may know, Hispanic survivors are significantly impacted by a lack of empowerment caused by barriers including cultural and misunderstandings about health care, fear, finances, lack of education and inadequate English. “Triunfadoras” helps survivors acquire the knowledge needed to understand the diagnosis, better live with cancer, learn how to navigate Utah’s Health Care System and to find adequate and affordable services and resources that they need. These programs help individuals develop the courage to work with the health care system for screening and treatment to get back to get their lives back on track and develop individual strength. Our success largely comes from a peer-to-peer- network as well providing education on health promotion and wellness, nutrition, and physical exercise to improve quality of life for survivors and their families.

Your contribution allows us to continue offering these valuable services.
