PADRES Contra El Cáncer (PADRES) is an organization committed to improving the quality of life for Latino children with cancer and their families.
PADRES began its mission more than 26 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.
NO FAMILY IS TURNED AWAY.
