Location: 2601 Mission St Ste 702 San Francisco CA 94110 USA

Mission: Circulo de Vida's mission is to walk alongside Latinos living with cancer and their families as they find their way through the fear, confusion, and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis. We aim to reduce the devastating effects of a cancer diagnosis by helping Latinos identify coping skills that will support their ability to meet the challenge of a frightening disease.
Results: We've worked very hard over the past four years to keep our doors open. As many non-profits, Circulo has been affected by the poor state of the economy. But we are hanging in and everyone referred to us has received the services they need to make it through a diagnosis of cancer.
Programs: Support Groups for Women, Men & Children Home & Hospital Visits, In-hospital support Individual Counseling Las Angelitas Peer Mentoring In Hospital Support Spanish Lang. Look Good/Feel Better Program Educational classes Resources and Information Program Internships Program Development Facilitator Training Outreach

When my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer many years ago, she felt alone and scared even though she had the support of family and friends she still felt alone and confused. During one of her many treatments she was talking to a women who was with Circulo de Vida so my mom and the lady kept close contact and the lady came out to visit my mom at her home and she shared her battle she had with breast cancer, my mom was able to understand that she was not the only one going through the tough time she was able to cope and understand her cancer.

My family and I thank Carmen Ortiz and Circulo de Vida for all the support they provided for my and our family. I love you guys!!!

I am proud to say that my mom Maria Rubio can share her story with others and is able to help and provide the support they need to get through their tough times.

Keep up the great work!
