No One Should Face Cancer Alone.

Triunfadoras is a cancer survivor support group for Latina women, their families, and caregivers. The program started in 2002 with eight patients and today we have over 600 members. 

Triunfadoras is the only culturally-sensitive, Spanish-language, on-going cancer support group in Utah.
