A little more about the Lotus Survival Foundation:

Lotus Survival Foundation (“LSF”) was founded in April 12 of 2010, and received its 501(c)(3) tax exempt status on May 11, 2010.  LSF was created from Claudia Aguirre’s passion and desire to pay it forward after her battle with breast cancer.  Claudia’s personal experiences have guided her in the process of creating a support program that empowers individuals before, during and in the wake of breast cancer.  For these reasons, the mission of LSF is to promote awareness in recognizing signs and symptoms, to provide education, and to ensure accessibility to available resources for members of vulnerable communities.  LSF’s innovative mentorship program provides emotional support and tools to integrate a holistic approach to healing the mind, body and soul.  LSF’s Vision is to ensure that all minorities and underserved communities have equal access across the continuum of care. 

LSF approach to ensure our mission is programs that focus on:

Education. LSF produces live and web-based programs and group discussions for individuals facing cancer, whether personal or as a caregiver. These programs offer up-to-date and reliable information, peer support, and practical coping skills as well as local resources available to these individuals.

Publications. LSF provides free easy-to-read and easy-to-understand information about awareness, knowing your own body, managing side effects and coping with cancer.

Counseling & Support Groups. LSF provides an in person, via the web or via telephone setting where people in similar situations can connect and share thoughts and experiences. We also offer an innovative mind, body and soul program that is led by professionals that provide direct services at all levels of the continuum of care, these include oncologist, surgeons, patient navigators, social workers, nurses and primary care providers. It is also worth mentioning that all of these providers are also cancer survivors.

Financial Counseling. LSF provides guidance to individuals, and their loved-ones, who are struggling with breast cancer to help manage their financial concerns and provides current referrals to organizations and facilities that conduct assessments, determine their immediate needs and provide assistance accordingly.

LSF envisions that all interested individuals are enabled to attend conferences, workshops, retreats and that our web-based educational materials are also accessible to all.
