5 Welcome from the Convening Committee Welcome, to this first of its kind National Latino Cancer Summit. You re a sight to behold! The hunger for this kind of gathering is reflected, not just in your presence here this week, but in the calls from across the country. Many wanted to participate but couldn t, often due to economic constraints. That is the story of our Latino communities around this country, eager to participate if asked, but not always able, due to lack of access. That is why we convened this Summit: to create an opportunity to talk to each other; to acknowledge, as a community, our struggle against cancer; to discover what we individually and collectively are doing about it; and to learn what more we can do to move forward together. In these 14 Panels and 5 Plenary sessions over the next two days, we will address a broad range of scientific and social issues as we try to get an understanding of the Latino cancer snapshot. Our 50 panelists and 7 keynotes are experts from a broad field of research as well as access and advocacy, survivorship, curanderismo (folk medicine), mental health, the growing community of promotoras, the cancer care continuum, and so much more. Our goal is to bring researchers, health care institutions and community-based organizations together to understand each others needs, provide opportunity for dialogue and collaboration, and to work together to better alleviate suffering, and improve the health and well-being of all Latinos affected by cancer. The call for this Summit started as we discussed the advancing science in stem cell research and biotechnology. We worried that while almost 1 in 5 Latinos dies of cancer, less than 7 percent engage in clinical trials that might lead to better treatment, targeted therapies and prolonged life. We want to raise awareness and encourage informed participation in medical research among Latinos, lest we be left even further behind in the translation of medical advances to clinical medicine, and ultimately, improved patient outcomes and survivorship. And we want community-based organizations and educators, the key link between the community and health care institutions, to be better prepared to provide important, even life-saving information. We ve set lofty goals. But we had to start somewhere. And remembering the Olympics commencing this next month- it is the excellence and determination we see here today that propels us toward the Gold. Enjoy your visit. Take every opportunity to learn and share. Go home a winner. We hope your community will be better served as a result.

7 Bienvenidos a la Cumbre Nacional de Latinos y el Cáncer Bienvenidos a la primera Cumbre Nacional de Latinos y el Cáncer. Son ustedes un panorama de admirar! El hambre por una reunión como ésta se refleja, no sólo en su presencia, sino en las llamadas que recibimos de todo el país. Muchos deseaban participar pero no pudieron debido a motivos económicos. Esta es la historia de nuestras comunidades latinas por todo el país, deseosas de participar si se les invita, pero sin poderlo hacer por falta de acceso. Por este motivo convocamos esta Cumbre: para crear la oportunidad de hablarnos unos a los otros; para reconocer, como comunidad, nuestra lucha contra el cáncer; para saber qué es lo que cada uno de nosotros y en conjunto estamos haciendo en la lucha; para aprender cuánto más podemos hacer para seguir adelante juntos. Durante los próximos dos días en los 14 paneles y 5 sesiones plenarias, discutiremos temas científicos y sociales para tratar de comprender la situación del cáncer entre los latinos. Nuestros 50 panelistas y 7 oradores son expertos en un amplio campo de investigación, acceso, defensa, sobrevivencia, curanderismo, salud mental, la creciente comunidad de promotoras, la atención continua del cáncer y mucho más. Nuestra meta fue reunir a investigadores, instituciones de salud, organizaciones comunitarias para comprender nuestras necesidades, proveer una oportunidad de diálogo y colaboración, trabajar juntos para mejor aliviar el sufrimiento, mejorar la salud y bienestar de todos los latinos afectados por el cáncer. La llamada a esta Cumbre comenzó mientras discutíamos los avances científicos de las celúlas madres y biotecnología. Nos preocupaba saber que casi 1 de 5 latinos mueren de cáncer, que menos del 7 por ciento de ellos participa en pruebas clínicas que pudieran ofrecerles mejores tratamientos, terapias y así prolongar su vida. Deseamos despertar las conciencias y animar a participar, de manera informada, en las investigaciones médicas a los latinos, para no quedarnos aun más atrás en la traducción de los avances médicos a la medicina clínica, y como resultado, mejorar la sobrevivencia de los pacientes latinos. Queremos que los educadores y organizaciones comunitarios, que son el enlace clave entre la comunidad y las instituciones de salud, estén bien preparados para proveer la información que pudiera salvar la vida de los pacientes. Nuestras metas son muy altas, pero teníamos que empezar por alguna parte. Recordando las Olimpiadas que empiezan el próximo mes - es la excelencia y determinación que vemos hoy que nos empuja hacia el Oro. Qué gocen de su visita! Aprovechen cada oporutnidad para aprender y compartir. Regresen a casa ganadores. Esperamos que cada una de sus comunidades sea mejor servida como resultado de su participación en esta Cumbre.

10 No estamos esperando por un cambio. Estamos trabajando para que ocurra. Miles de residentes de California luchan cada día contra los costos crecientes del cuidado de la salud y por poder ahorrar para la jubilación. Es la hora de que garanticemos la seguridad de todos, tanto en la salud como en lo económico. Es por ello que AARP ha puesto en marcha la iniciativa Divididos Perdemos para otorgarles voz a los millones de estadounidenses que están cansados de permitir que las trabas originadas en Washington se interpongan entre ellos y la posibilidad de contar con servicios de cuidado de la salud asequibles y de calidad, y seguridad económica a largo plazo. 10

So Silvia was shocked when in September of 2005, shortly after her 49th birthday, she was diagnosed with colon cancer. An operation revealed a huge tumor and the doctors gave her little hope for a cure. What they gave her was an aggressive round of chemo to reduce the tumor, but no actual hope that they could save her life. Silvia Molina, wife and mother of 3, continued to work two jobs until this year. She did it she says, to not give herself time to be depressed. Even more importantly, it also provided her with the insurance that helps pay for her treatments at Kaiser in Hayward, CA, in the San Francisco Bay Area. When the doctors told Silvia they could do no more, she starting looking into clinical trials. 19
