At Curémonos, we're creating a strong movement towards change.

Curémonos' Holiday Cheer Program:

At Curémonos, we know how difficult the holidays can be for breast cancer patients in active treatment, especially for those who are facing financial difficulties. We provide cheer to breast cancer patients and their families during the holiday season. Groceries, gifts for the little ones, gift cards and much more are provided to patients in active treatment. This is what the holidays should be all about, helping and giving back to those who are facing insurmountable hardships.

Curémonos - Summit Medical Group

Join Summit Medical Group surgeon, Peter Hyans, M.D., and Curémonos Founder, Dora E. Arias, for a moving story on how Curémonos helps medically underserved and uninsured women with breast cancer.

Curémonos is a grassroots, community-based organization created to provide education, support, and advocacy to medically underserved women, primarily Latinas, who are dealing with breast health concerns or a breast cancer diagnosis.

Curémonos helps underserved Latinas through breast health education and personalized patient centered advocacy. We advocate with hospitals, physicians and community organizations to help patients and their families navigate the complex health system to obtain appropriate care in a timely, efficient and culturally accessible manner.  By encouraging early diagnosis and treatment, patients obtain better health outcomes.
