Culture and language are two reasons many Latinas don’t always get timely and appropriate treatment for breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the No. 1 killer of Latinas.
The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) is hoping to alleviate some of the barriers to timely treatment through a series of informational materials in both English and Spanish.
The MBCN has created several informational resources for individuals coping with Stage IV breast cancer:
- Conozca los datos
- Diagóstico: Cáncer de mama metastásico… ¿Qué significa para usted?
- La serie sobre el cáncer de mama metastásico: Guía para nuevas pacientes
“Being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer can often be a frightening or overwhelming for many women,” according to the MBCN. “This type of diagnosis can be especially difficult with those who don’t speak the language.”
