ALEXANDRIA, VA – Founded in 1999, Nueva Vida, Inc is an Alexandria cancer support network for Latinas who have cancer, have survived it, and their loved ones affected by the illness. On Nov. 30, the nonprofit launched its second online art auction called VIDART. It will run through Dec. 13.

They also sponsor a psychosocial support group aimed at improving quality of life for all clients
