The event I most recently volunteered at, the poker tounrament was a monumental success. Not only was the tournament organized and ran in such a way to raise the most money out of it, but everyone involved, including celebrity poker players, were having a wonderful and fun time giving and riasing money.

There is no better organization to support people going through cancer, whether as a patient or someone connected to a patient. Their compassion, driven by people like Nancy Allen, whose heart is as big as her smile, and founder Wendi Jo Sperber (rest in peace), creates a welcome and safe environment for those who have had to deal with this devastating disease. They do this through their programs, group sessions and activities.

Aside from volunteering at this fantastic place I was also a client when I was going through cancer. WeSpark is an amazing, wonderful and safe place for people with cancer and their families. It is all free of charge. The support I got there was incredible. Going through cancer can be such a difficult time and I felt so grateful to have a place to go to for some holistic treatments and to meet other people who understood what I was going through. My teenage son was able to go to a support group there for teens and that was so helpful for our family.

While I was going through chemo treatments I went to WeSpark a few times a week for the holistic treatments they offer. I can't say enough about how much that helped me through the most difficult time of my life.

The concern for everyone involved (both cancer patients and volunteers) at WeSPARK is downright contagIous. There is a 'can-do' quality, a sense of optimism that is indeed rare nowadays---

such a worthwhile cause and lovely people and best of all weSPARK provides a multitude of resources FREE to families and cancer patients from workshops, to yoga and support groups and counseling and rides to appointments....it is such a shame that their founder Wendy Jo Sperber succumbed to cancer herself, but the legacy she has left is priceless.

Was a guest that participated in a grief group to help recover form the loss of my mother to cancer. Received immense grief relief. I appreciated the free services and groups and wanted to give back by creating an event fundraiser. They are an amazing group of people in an amazing healing environment.

I began as a facilitator some years ago. Wendie Jo was active at weSPARK at that time and generated the “spark” in weSPARK. Cancer and laughter, on the face of it, should be in opposition. Not so in the hallowed and cozy weSPARK. Perhaps a little background would give the reader some context. When I was nineteen years old, I lost my mother to cancer. At that time in our history, cancer was a big family secret. “Polite people” handled things, even teenage girls. There were no family support groups. One toughed it out and got on with it. Imagine my delight to find, “as an adult” a place where I could give the thing I had wanted most. Nancy Allen’s insight into how best to showcase the needs of the guests was part of Wendi Jo’s vision. Nancy brought that vision to life as Creative Director. What I get from the guests is far more than I give. Thank you weSPARK staff.
