and Support for Hispanic/Latina Breast Cancer Survivors

ALAS-WINGS mission is to advocate for and improve the lives of breast cancer survivors through education, mental health programs, and emotional support groups for Hispanic/Latina women and their families. All ALAS-WINGS programs are free and conducted in Spanish.

Educational Workshops

In our educational programs, Hispanic/Latina women learn about the importance of breast health and care. They also receive guidance and support as they navigate through the complexities of cancer treatment. Presentation topics include breast health, cancer treatment, breast reconstruction, lymphedema, clinical trials, genetics, and stress management.

Mental Health Programs

ALAS provides mental health education and psychosocial support that enable Hispanic/Latina women to improve their quality of life, decrease feelings of isolation, and increase their self-confidence. ALAS also initiated a unique program that offers survivors individual psychotherapy sessions with licensed therapists, paid by ALAS– all in Spanish.

Virtual Support Group

Support groups offer the opportunity for cancer survivors, their families, and support team to share their stories, concerns, and experiences (celebrations). It is a safe place that provides empathic, emotional support for Hispanic/Latinas dealing with breast cancer. These groups are facilitated in Spanish.

Alas-Yoga

In collaboration with the Wellness House, ALAS sponsors a tailored yoga series for Hispanic/Latina survivors and their caregivers that promote physical, emotional, and social well-being. Yoga classes are conducted virtually in Spanish.
