Curémonos, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping underserved women, particularly Latinas, to better navigate their way to breast cancer screenings, treatment of breast cancer and support, marked its third anniversary on Friday, May 4, 2012, with a celebration at the Park Avenue Club in Florham Park attended by volunteers, supporters, health care professionals, dignitaries, and many of the women whose lives the program has touched.
Curémonos engages Latina breast cancer survivors to provide education, advocacy, peer support, patient navigation and interpretation services to other Latinas affected by cancer. Curémonos helps ensure seamless, coordinated care and services, as well as timely access to care. They also provide Latinas timely access to the same programs and resources available to the English speaking community. The organization’s partners include Overlook Medical Center, Nueva Vida in Washington, D.C., and the YMCA in Summit.
