Hispanic Women Less Likely to Get Checked for Breast Cancer

Like many minorities, a lack of access to care prevents many Hispanic women from getting early screening they need, making breast cancer the biggest cancer killer among that group. Most Hispanic women speak little or no English, so they already have limited access to information. But thanks to a breast health initiative funded by the Komen Foundation, the word about breast cancer is coming to them, not only in their living rooms and churches, but in their native language.

For many Hispanics, the cost of care forces them to make the difficult choice between feeding their family and taking care of their health. Support from the hospital and local radiologists plus the grant of almost $75,000 pays for transportation costs, mammograms, and for treatment for those who need it.
