PADRES Contra El Cáncer is an organization comitted to improving the quality of life for children with cancer and their families. While primarily oriented to the Latino community, PADRES' programs, activities and services benefit childhood cancer patients and their families from all ethnic and economic backgrounds so that NO FAMILY IS TURNED AWAY and all services are FREE.
PADRES began its mission more than 32 years ago to support the needs of the Latino community who have a higher risk of medical problems due to a series of complex factors, including language barriers, socio-economic challenges and limited access to community resources. Through culturally relevant and linguistically-appropriate programs, PADRES bridges these gaps to promote a comprehensive understanding of childhood cancer and other blood disorders, as well as, effective methods for treatment.
Today, as the only organization of its kind in the United States, PADRES' unique programs, activities and services, benefit childhood cancer patients from all ethnic and economic backgrounds, serving families from initial diagnosis to survivorship.
