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 MBCN has created several informational resources for individuals coping with Stage IV breast cancer:
“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.”
Materials can be downloaded or ordered as hard copies, and are available in English, too.
