ALAS-WINGS is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering Hispanic/Latina women about breast cancer awareness through comprehensive education, support for women faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, and survivorship care. ALAS arose out of very humble circumstances with the dreams and passion of one Latina breast cancer survivor. Starting with the minimum essentials, ALAS has established loyal relationships with most major hospitals, medical facilities, and Latino organizations or businesses throughout the Chicagoland area, all of which have provided support for the efforts of ALAS to help uninsured and underserved Latina women and their families.
