ELLAS (En La Lucha A Sobrevivir, or In the Fight to Survive)

ELLAS“ELLAS” is a support group for women who have survived or are being treated for breast cancer. The group’s goal is to help these women normalize their lives and receive support throughout this very difficult experience. ELLAS was established by women in our neighborhoods who saw the need for a support group that understood the culture and needs of the Latino community.

ELLAS meets once a month to discuss breast cancer prevention in order to help educate other women in the community. The meeting also offers information on available classes, such as computer classes and leadership formation training, that can help participants in their daily and professional lives.

For more information about ELLAS, for dates on upcoming meetings, and for additional resources on breast cancer awareness and prevention, please call Araceli Lucio at 312-880-1888.
