Mayte Prida is a nationally renowned television host, author, and one of the most prominent Hispanic advocates for women and health issues in the country today.
Mayte is a breast cancer survivor just like thousands of women all over the world. Here she offers her personal story and own struggles with our health care system and offers a compelling statement in support of health care reform.
Born and raised in Mexico City , Mayte began her career in local and national news, and went on to host and produce “America”, a national Univision program. Most recently, she was hosting Entre Amigas as part of the national Telemundo show Cada Dia.
In 2001 adversity struck Mayte as she was diagnosed with breast cancer in an advanced stage. She wrote her ordeal in her first book “A Difficult Journey, My Battle with Cancer,” and documented her first year fighting the disease with the hopes of helping other women affected by cancer.
Mayte has been invited to the Capitol Hill to speak on behalf of the Health Disparities Bill and is currently involved in the creation of several initiatives that will improve the medical and health issues of Hispanics in this country.
