Meet a Member
Spanish Discussion Board member Criolla has graciously offered to share her story:
“Each day I spoil myself, I celebrate it, and my losses made me strong, positive and grateful to my parents, children and God. I think my strength also had to do with my culture, born in Bolivia where women are independent fighters…” Read Criolla’s story in English or in Spanish >>
We’d appreciate any assistance in helping to get the word out to healthcare providers about our Spanish Discussion Boards! Talk to your doctors, nurses, friends, and family and let them know there’s support available at Breastcancer.org for Spanish speakers.
