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.

The help the Circulo de Vida offers to Latinos who are living with Cancer is invaluable. The organization is unique in that the services it provides are comprehensive, available to all (diagnosed with all types of cancer and their families). If the needs of the patient cannot be met by Circulo de Vida, their staff works very hard to access services from collateral services on behalf of the client, while following the client for as along as necessary.
