‘We Have The Same Right To Fight For Our Lives As Anyone’
Explaining the many barriers that Latino immigrants face in accessing healthcare here in Kansas City and across our nation is complex and not always an easy story to tell. There are many layers to our healthcare system and many issues we face every day in working to find healthcare services for our community, especially when it comes to accessing cancer care. A part of our Ni Uno Más (Not One More) campaign is sharing the stories of those impacted by inequitable access, so everyone becomes aware of just how critical this issue is.
Mary Sanchez, senior reporter with Kansas City PBS/Flatland, published a story this week about our Ni Uno Más campaign. She hit the nail on the head, highlighting all the steps and issues our Latino immigrant community faces. Her story shows how inequitable access is a concern across our healthcare system and how it is impacting real lives and real people, like Isidro who we are still working with as he navigates his cancer care.
Thank you Mary and Kansas City PBS/Flatland for working with us, our community, and digging even deeper into this issue. Improved equitable access to cancer care treatment would not just be a win for our Latino immigrant community, it would be a win for everyone!
