I know several cancer warriors and survivors that have been helped by weSPARK and their dedicated staff members. They have many programs that most people can't afford or even think of that benefit not only their clients but the families as well.

Working with weSPARK over the last year has had an incredible impact on my life. It is a place that promotes community and healing in ways that seem almost magical. It is a beautifully special place.

I have been involved w/weSPARK for about 8 years -- originally taking advantage of the incredibly supportive services offered through this organization. The people that work here are extremely dedicated and committed to continuing the goals of Wendie Jo Sperber, the founder of weSPARK. I am now a volunteer and am gratified by being able to contribute in a "pay it forward" way. The activities offered here at no cost to the "guests" are physically, psychicly and emotionally advantageous to cancer survivors (including those continuing in treatment and post treatment) and and their families and friends. The atmosphere is supportive and upbeat yet recognizing and serving the needs of individuals.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a cancer survivor I have been able to take advantage of many of the services offered.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Like to have a larger space and more parking, but recognize that there are often financial limitations as well as convenience of location to meet the needs of an unfortunately growing population.

I am a cancer survivor that was lucky enough to find this terrific organization. Initially I was in support groups, took advantage of many of the ongoing classes offered, and made numerous friends. This is a most caring organization dedicated to making the lives of cancer related patients, their friends and families realize they are not alone and will provide whatever help they can. I now volunteer when needed.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the happiness it brings to all people involved.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to get more people involved and contributing.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

its ability to recognize the needs of people affected by cancer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring and concerned.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change thelives of millions of people for the better.

Ways to make it better...

the founder had not passed away.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding the funds to continue its services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I've said enough!

WeSPARK is the warmest most caring charity i have ever seen. They help those who are suffering with cancer and all of their loved ones and caregivers providing free services to all.
I have seen people through the years get the love and support they do not get at the hospital or
clinics.

This is a much needed charity, and I love what they stand for.

It would be fantastic if every town had a weSPARK. currently it is in Sherman Oaks

I am a hypnotherapist and guided imagery facilitator. Once a month I volunteer with the children of WeSpark to guide them through journeys that relieve stress, build confidence, and assist in imagining positive bright futures. WeSpark Cancer Support Center provides a wonderful environment for cancer patients, families, and caregivers to receive wonderful, healing, healthful services, free of charge that assist in empowering these people in their journeys.

I have been a volunteer at weSPARK fundraising events for the past 14 years. I am a cancer survivor and am now on the Board of Directors. weSPARK is unique in the fact that we consider holistically the entire family. Not just one member of a family has cancer all of them must live through the experience and the pain. At weSPARK free services that insurance does not pay for is provided to all. The groups are very distinct in the type of cancer or level which you are at. It considers family members that are dealing with a loved one or have lost a loved one. There is no other place as unique as wSPARK. I can emphatically state that weSPARK is a GREAT Non-Profit whose heart is in the right place. I am a much better person for my association as a volunteer and Board of Directors member and I for one am proud of it. weSPARK deserves this recognition as a small community driven entity whose heart is in the right place. I am a much better person for my association as a volunteer.

I began Volunteering for weSPARK 10 years ago. It is an amazing organization unlike any other cancer support center. It combines the healing of mind, spirit and body with holistic and creative support. You find caring persons while proving all the services for FREE in a home like environment. I as a cancer survivor am proud to be associated with this organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Spend more money on outreach.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people and the good that it does for guests who need support.

People who volunteered and are dediciated and enjoy the experiance.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Do much good in a way no other cancer support center provides the services and the way it specializes in bringing groups of persons that have the same needs and dealing with similar conditions. The atmosphere is a living room environment Non-Threatening

Ways to make it better...

More awareness of our free services so we can grow and reach out to others.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Program dollars.

One thing I'd also say is that...

weSpark is like no other place for free support services.

I was a dear friend of the late Wendie Jo Sperber, the founder of WeSpark, and have volunteered at numerous events for the organization. To see the amazing amount of good that WeSpark does and how it has been able to grow and thrive as the only Cancer Support Center in the entire San Fernando Valley in California is remarkable. She has left a tremendous legacy. I, for one, am glad to have been touched by Wendie Jo, and I am glad to be a part of her work continuing on.

I was both a client and volunteer. The thing I love about WeSpark is they are all about helping people. They keep their overhead low and all money raised goes to the programs helping people. I was drawn into the family feeling I got there and they great people on the staff. I've worked on the shows and golf tournaments - both have been so much fun!
