New Lives--Latinos, Cancer, and Spirituality: An Ethnographic History

As part of a Principles in Clinical Medicine assignment, I was able to interview a Latino family. Luis and Isabel are a pleasant Hispanic couple who are open and accurate historians. They speak fragmented English, but seem to have excellent comprehension. We had little difficulty communicating, though they both prefer to speak in Spanish. They insist that their three children speak Spanish around the house; in fact, Luis says he pretends not to understand English when the children speak it around the house. Luis and Isabel both speak English when out in public to try to avoid the discrimination they both experienced when they first came to the US and could not speak English.
