Hispanic Alliance announces 2nd annual community walk against Cancer

CLEVELAND, August 29, 2018: The Hispanic Alliance [HA] and NOAHH (Northeast Ohio Association for Hispanic Health) has announced their 2nd Annual Community Walk Against Cancer taking place on September 8, 2018. The Cleveland Clinic is this year’s premier sponsor.

The Cancer Walk began at the Hispanic Alliance, 3110 West 25th Street, Cleveland, Ohio at 10:00 A.M. In case of rain, the event will be held at Youth For Christ City Life, 3340 Trowbridge Ave. “This event is to send the message that we are all living with cancer, and to support and educate everyone in our community about the importance of early detection”, says Juan Molina Crespo, Executive Director of the Hispanic Alliance. In addition, physicians and nurses from Cleveland Clinic and University Hospitals will be available to answer any questions residents may have.

According to the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, cancer affects everyone in different ways. Breast cancer rates are lower in Hispanic women than in other races, but it remains to be the leading cause of cancer deaths among Hispanic women. Hispanic women are also 20 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than non-Hispanic white women diagnosed at a similar age and stage. Colorectal cancer is the 2nd most commonly diagnosed cancer in Hispanic Men and Women.

Fortunately, colorectal cancer is highly treatable if caught early enough. Hispanic women have about twice the risk of developing cervical cancer, compared with non-Hispanic women. Cervical cancer can typically be treated successfully if abnormal cells are found early. Many studies have shown that regular screening with the Papincolaou (Pap) test is linked with dramatic reductions in cervical-cancer deaths. About 90 percent of women whose cervical cancer was detected by a Pap test will survive. In many cases, the chances of survival rise the sooner cancer is detected.

The Hispanic Alliance: established in 2008, to create a unified voice on leadership development, voter registration and civic engagement, and community mobilization on issues that affect the Latino community. Their values are an integral part of their commitment to remain accountable and culturally relevant in meeting the needs of the community through their initiatives.  http://haldiclev.org/hispanic-alliance/ for additional information.

The Northeast Ohio Association for Hispanic Health: is an initiative of the Hispanic Alliance to reduce the disparity in health issues, increase access and promote overall health and well-being within the Hispanic community in the greater Cleveland area through education , collaborationb and advocacy.
