I wish I'd known about We Spark earlier in my cancer journey. However, I am so grateful that at least I knew about them when I did - better late than never. We Spark has been a life saver. I met other people going through a similar journey so I could relate to them and talk to them. I had never tried any personal growth classes before in my life - my life had always been school, college, work, take care of kids and hardly ever time for myself. At We Spark, I started taking classes like Yoga, Tai Chi etc. These classes helped me in my healing process a lot. The staff at We Spark was so very helpful and kind. I am v.v.v. grateful to them.

in march 2012, i was diagnosed with breast cancer. after many medical appointments and decisions, i had surgery in may. i knew i needed help with the emotions which followed but could not get to ucla on a regular basis for their program. then, wespark was recommended. i had my intake with bonnie who is wonderfully compassionate, and started going to support groups. the experience has been life changing. i have talked with others who have cancer and gone to a breast cancer networking group. some of the horror and fear of a cancer diagnosis are subsiding. i am connecting with other women in group, where we can discuss the details of our surgeries, treatment and emotions. valuable information about treatment and resources is available also. i look forward to going every week and am so greatful wespark exists.

I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lyphoma in 2009. I was a mom of a 5 year son and a wife and teacher. My life fell apart. WeSpark helped me though the hardest time in my life. The free therapy sessions helped me feel less alone. Bonnie Franklin the therapist was amazing and caring. When I was scared to loose my hair, another woman took off her hat and showed me her almost bald head with newly hair growing back. She was so proud and that gave the courage to get through losing my hair and gave me hope that it would grow back. Raike and Yoga helped me too. I am Cancer Free today and was amazed that I was contacted by the WePal profram and today spoke with a young woman just diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. I was able to share my story and share my hope.

My name is Julie and I am a Hodkins Lymphma Cancer Survivor, who is almost done with treatment! I am 37 years old and was diagnosed January 2009. I was referred to WeSPARK by my oncologist because I was looking for a support group to help me through my nighmare. I will never forget the first group session I went to. I still had a head full of hair and my doctor had told me that it would be falling out really soon. I was devestated. At the group a woman took off her hat and showed me an almost bald head. Her hair was growing back from her chemo. She talked about her journey and listening to her strength gave me the strength to shave my head when my hair started to fall out and I just couldn't take it. Other times at the group sessions, I would cry a lot and would share all my feelings (fear, anger, hope) and would feel understood. As I continue with my journey, I feel that I could now be strenth to other new members. Now, I'm the one who feels comfortable without much hair. I understand what it feels like to go through chemotherapy and to be in that dark tunnel of treatment. I also know know that I see the light at the end of the tunnel and was able to get to this place easier because of the WeSparK support group. I want to be hope and have a place to share that hope with others. Bonnie F. at WeSparks is the leader of the group I went to and she was amazing and I felt so lucky to find WeSpark. It's an amazing program.

The Great!

Wonderful organization. Being diagnosed with Breast Cancer is hard in itself and so comforting to know that such a great organization does exist out there to give us the support and nurturing we so desperately need. The classes and the individual reiki and other relaxation really helped me through some rough moments during and after treatment. So very grateful that someone told me about htis group and that I was able to sign up along with my spouse and 5 year old daughter. We were all taken care of and warmly received. Thank you WeSpark for being a true angel for me and so many others!!

WeSpark made me feel good about myself again after 6 surgeries, chemo and radiation. Their classes are free and tremendously helpful. The workers are kind, compassionate and wonderful. Just sitting in WeSpark premises is so relaxing and made me want to continue to live. I recommend it for all cancer patients.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 30yrs old. I tried many support groups yet there were none that fit my needs. I found WeSpark and they made me feel very special. I fit in there. They provided me with the resources to recover from cancer in all aspects; mentally, physically, and emotionally. I could not be here today if it wasn't for them.

My Oncolcogist recommended We Spark and I do not know what I would have done without the We Spark center. From the great receptionist's, to the healer's, classes, post cancer support group and the new friends I have made, I do not know what I would have done!!!! Everyone made me feel sooo very welcome, luv the warm welcoming smile of Alexandria. The healing sessions are amazing and my MD is amazed how much better I have become with Lauren's yoga class....

My dear friend lost her life to Cancer at the end of 2011. Her son was five at the time and I began bringing him to the WeSPARK children's playgroup in 2012. It had been a wonderful experience for him as well as for his father who has gotten their support for his son after this great tragedy. I'm so very grateful for WeSPARK! Patricia Maertens

I am heading into my third year if breast cancer survivorship and WeSpark helped me cope during my initial treatment by providing support groups and activities (yoga, meditation, etc.) that were beneficial in getting me through my treatment.

When I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer, I felt very alone and scared. A friend who had received help from the many services that WeSpark offered, told me where to go to get started. They offered so many programs to help with stress (Yoga, Guided Imagery, Tai Chi...to name a few) and the support groups run by wonderful Tara, were of great help during a difficult time. They even helped me get some hats and wigs to prepare for the hair loss during chemo. Having an organization like this, offering programs for free to clients who are struggling with cancer, is a wonderful thing! Thank you, WeSpark!

The Great!

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

receiving emotional support and participating in Guided Imagery classes to help with stress.

Ways to make it better...

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

figure out a way for them to be closer to Santa Clarita!
