College of Education Comadre a Comadre Fund
This program helps Hispanic/Latina women and their loved ones through education and support about breast health and breast cancer. It was founded with the input of survivors, and their loved ones, because of the lack of culturally sensitive psychosocial support available to them and their own lack of knowledge of services when they were diagnosed. The Program is funded by caring donors like you.
Breast cancer survivors are traditionally an underutilized resource for their community, and they provide a wealth of personal insight and spiritual intuitive awareness. The program is a culturally and linguistically competent one-on-one peer support intervention. In addition to improving breast health, it is designed to improve breast cancer outcomes among newly diagnosed Hispanic/Latina women. Your generous gift supports this important work in the community.
