The folks at we Spark are dedicated and brilliant at serving their purpose. I have been a supporter financially and participated in some dial-a-thon's to raise money for such a paramount cause. As they continue to grow and help others in fighting their ( TEMPORARY ) battles I will support their Side ;) - James Jordan Jr. ;)

I connected with weSPARK through a friend of mine who is close with the org. Since then i've been volunteering at their fundraising events. The sheer passion their team has for their mission is inspirational. Above and beyond that, the services they provide are SO needed. We all have been effected by cancer of some sort in this day and age. To have a place for both patients and families to find comfort and support through their fight is a true blessing to those that have access! The fact that it's FREE is even MORE AMAZING!

I always enjoy volunteering at a weSPARK event. The staff is friendly and the events are always first rate. This organization is such a community place and it is so touching to see the impact all their services have on the cancer community. Thank you weSPARK for being a great safe place for cancer patients.

weSPARK is a special place and I am so happy I have had the opportunity to volunteer here. They are kind to everyone who uses their services and it's amazing that everything they offer-all the support, the classes, the workshops-are completely FREE. It's great to know a place like weSPARK exists for people with cancer.

weSpark Cancer Support Center provides so much hope and enthusiasm for those affected by cancer or those who have survived cancer or those who are family members of cancer patients. Being a volunteer on several fund raising events and being a part of this outstanding program has made me a much better person and I applaud all that they have done and continue to do to make lives somewhat bearable

I have been an active volunteer with weSPARK for 4 years now and find there services to be unlike anything I have ever witnessed.
They pick up where the medical field leaves them short.. with love and nurturing support, a safe haven in a lonely world of cancer.

I started a fundraiser
at Notre Dame High School for weSPARK to have a teen cooking program, in which teens are learning to cook as their parents are too ill to prepare meals during their treatment or recovery.

I still feel like I have done something so meaningful for these kids. And it was months ago.

weSPARK is like having angels on your shoulder.

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.

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.

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!

When you walk into weSPARK, you feel as if you are home. The staff is welcoming and accommodating. The environment is warm and light. The fridge is always stocked with healthy and satisfying treats and the cabinets are stocked with an abundance of teas and coffees. Each group room is cozy, comfortable and always the right temperature. The individual sessions such as Reiki, Reflexology, Qi Gong and IET are all free and would cost an arm and a leg anywhere else. This organization should really be more known, as they offer FREE support to cancer patients. I can't say enough good things about weSPARK.

I beat cancer in 2005. that summer I met an actor, an older man who reminded me of my grandfather who died of cancer. He bought me lunch for my birthday. A year later I was working on sets and a character actor I had met on other sets told me my friend had cancer. He was terminal. I ran into him one day working, acting, on a set doing what he loved. He told me I should go to We Spark. that I could do good there. Well I gave him my e-mail but i gave him the wrong one. He thought I could get it on my phone. When I got home I found out that he had tried to reach me. I tried to find out where he was or what was happening to him, but I never saw him again. You might say I have been fighting to pay back that lunch ever since. two years ago I was told I could not be on sets anymore. I unjustly lost the only reason I chose to fight for my life. But like my friend I would rather spend my last breath being on a set somewhere then anywhere else. the last time I saw him he was on Gray's Anatomy. Even if my life is falling apart, I have to give back. We all need a balance in life and when you cancer, you need it more than ever. Having a safe place where you know it is OK to be sick and to not be judged for it, is vital. So I volunteer even when I feel like every thing I fought the cancer for is gone. His name was Ray Latulipe, and I for one will never forget him.
