Jose

Patient Leader

We have our work cut out for us in the Latino community. This is such a quiet cancer. There are a lot of taboos about the body, about health -- it's going to be hard. You can't do a self check for this. You have to go to a doctor; you have to navigate the medical system. We need to make the case for being proactive -- it will make it easier for you in the long run. Do something before you have to think about the treatment costs. I think we should do our outreach to the mothers as they are the "bosses of the house." We want you to be informed so you can help your family. The fathers are usually the providers and don't like to ask doctors questions. Let's motivate our families to get screened.
