For 34 years I have worked for and with non-profits. We saprk is unique,it asks it guests what they want and need in support services and education. After they ascertain what they want and need they actually provide it. From support groups for all family and friends of a person with cancer to energy sessions. We spark provides services for children of all ages that have a loved one with cancer.

I am the Founder of My Bridge 4 Life and and about to launch this community network for patient and caregiver/supporters. We have piloted this program at weSPARK. The future thinking vision of the center and willingness to blend health 2.0 enabling technologies with world class traditional support group work makes it a one of kind organization in my book!

I have heard about weSPARK and its free cancer services - I have seen how much their services benefit their clients. I know their biggest trouble is funding - these women deserve so much! The smiles they bring to their clients faces is worth every penny of possible donations.

We have partnered with WeSpark to bring much needed support to the uninsured patients of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valleys. By bringing the services to Olive View Medical Center, we have been able to ensure access for our patients. Thank you so much for your dedication to the uninsured!

weSpark is the best Cancer Support Center in Southern California. The programs support the entire human being and facilitate healing. Without weSpark, many people would not be doing as well as they are doing. From the moment a person walks in the front door, that person can feel the love, compassion and support. weSpark clients are given every tool necessary to fight this disease--and the clients are winning!

weSPARK is a cozy retreat for cancer patients and their families. The staff and facilitators are dedicated to the guests and do their best to help ease the journey with cancer. Their wonderful program is a godsend to those in need. It is like a second family for those people who need support. The support groups are loving and open. The movement classes are specifically designed with cancer families in mind and the spiritual and energy healing classes provide hope and dignity while welcoming peace into the hearts and minds of guests.

I arrived at WeSPARK a few weeks after completing radiation treatments for breast cancer. I was blessed to have been a part of WeSPARK while Wendy Jo the founder, was still an everyday part of activities and inspiration. I was in an abyss of depression due to handling the death of my spouse and cancer treatment without him nor family members. It is all I could do to drag myself to WeSPARK, however I found groups of other men & women who were not as fortunate as myself, Wendy for one. The other warriors and facilitators picked me up and held me while I gathered my inner strength back. I joined their yoga, ti-chi and quigon (sorry about the spelling)and volunteered at their fund raisers as I began to come back into myself. It was been 6 since I "needed" them, however, I will never forget how they saved my sanity and helped bring me back among the the living. I am cancer free these 6 years and will always be available to WeSPARK when ever I am needed, so I can assist others as they assisted me.

Out of all the cancer support groups, this one is unique and special. The array of offerings is staggering. The committment to helping, not just the cancer patient, but their children as well, is what makes this group stand out. caring, lovely individuals, all sorts of classes and experiences and room for other family members. Absolutely fantastic.

weSPARK provides an understanding community in a cozy home atmosphere in many people's greatest time of need. They have a huge selection of supportive and creative programs and encourage everyone to try as many of them as they would like. The wonderful staff, volunteers, and other guests are always there to listen and support one another. I recommend weSPARK to every cancer patient and their family members that I meet.

weSPARK is a really great, all inclusive, well rounded, FREE support center for people with cancer , their families and children. It is an amazing grassroots, community based center that offers different modalities of support from emotional, to physical and spiritual. It is a friendly, casual and homey environment to get you out of a hospital feel and into the arms of others that understand. I encourage anyone with cancer or effected by cancer to check them out
