I love WeSPARK. I adored Wendy and I admire her approach to wellness. A member of WeSPARK invited me to the center and the staff just WOW-ed me with their kindness and care. Love heals and this is a terrific place to feel loved. Michael Dudikoff

I've been a volunteer for 4 years now. I originally got involved with the non-profit through the company that I worked for when weSpark came by looking for some volunteers. After finding out what they did for cancer patients and their families I instantly felt great respect for these people and their cause. I lost my Grandfather years ago to cancer and I felt like it didn't allow me to meet the man I feel like I'm most like. weSpark allows people like me to learn to cope with the fight against cancer, even if it isn't always a winning battle.

the gold tournament that brings everyone together for this great cause; the love and support everyone brings to the event even if they're not directly affected, they still help.

I have been priveledged to be part of weSPARK since the very beginning. Wendie Jo, our beloved founder was a dear friend of mine. Since our doors opened in March of 2001 I have enjoyed being part of creating this most loving, nurturing and healing center. In a warm homelike environment families and individuals can find an oasis during a challenging and frighteneing time in their lives. On a daily basis I see people benifiting from the healing services and rebuilding their bodies and lives. I hear laughter and tears coming from the rooms as our guests share their stories with each other. I am trully the luckiest person in the world to work in this loving evironment.

I recently started volunteering at weSPARK and the experience has been truly inspiring. It has been in interacting with guests in the halls, out in front and even in the parking lot, that I discovered the power of weSPARK for the many lives it touches. I remember a moment when I first talked to a guest about our services and seeing her the next day. It was her face, as she recognized me and said hello with a smile, that made me realize how powerful weSPARK's work is. It is a community of experiences, a place of love. I value my time at weSPARK for each smile in the kitchen, the sound of classes in the rooms and the laughter of guests before yoga. This is a place of strength and healing and that is wonderful to be a part of.

My experience with weSpark is as a volunteer. I do not deal with the clients directly however, I can feel the healing environment each time I walk in the door. The atmosphere is quiet and warm. The other volunteers I have worked with along with the staff are kind and loving. I look forward to my days at weSpark and feeling even better each time I walk out the door.

I have known of the weSpark Center for several years, but only in the past year have I personally become affiliated with them. After having a close family member diagnosed with cancer, I can not believe how crucial cancer support centers, like weSpark, are to the patient's treatment and healing process. First what sets weSpark's apart is that is does not feel like a "cancer center" but more like a mental wellness and spa retreat where patients can enjoy yoga, or nutrition classes -- or find the support or therapy sessions they need in what is often an extrememly tense, stressful and painful experience. It's amazing places -- and people like the weSpark -- exist and continue to strive to bring the best techniques, methods and facilities to their patients.

The Great!

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

my family members that have personal involvement as well as members of the amazing staff that I know.

Ways to make it better...

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

make sure everyone in the local community ares, know about the amazing benefits of the center and how they could help.

More feedback...

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

the people that work for weSpark and the amazing benefits and immediate changes you see in the patients after first attending weSpark.

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

exceptional in all ways.

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

start support centers all over California to bring this support to others.

Ways to make it better...

I knew organizations like WeSpark will always be around to offer cancer patients their ancillary support.

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

keeping up moral and funds.

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

WeSpark has my full support.
