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

Literally hearing guests say how pleasantly they are getting through their experience with cancer because of weSPARK. I get to see people smile; people who, without weSPARK, would not have the emotional strength to do so.

Give us more donations so we can touch even more lives with our services.

This is an amazing place. When you are going through any kind of cancer, you are looking for empathy, intelligence on your condition, kindness, comraderie, informed therapists, a nice environment, and a place to go and hang your hat where you will not be judged but welcomed. WeSpark embodies all of these components. I have found everyone I have met there to be kind, gracious, understanding, patient and loving. There is NO charge for anything and I find that amazing. With incomes the way they are fluctuating these days, it is comforting to know that you dont have to pay anything to get the therapy that you so desperately need during such a trying time. I have recommended it t my friends and look forward to our weekly sessions. They offer many many types of therapies and I just want the public to know that if God forbid you are stricken with cancer, there is help out there. Just go and see for yourself, You will be welcomed with open arms and you will glean a lot from the other patients as well as the therapists.
I feel very fortunate to have found WeSpark and hope that it continues to serve members of the community for many many years.

weSpark is an amazing organization!!! weSpark is a place that helps Cancer patients, families and friends for free. There are very few places that offer this support. We need more organizations to follow in weSparks footsteps. I honor the founder Wendie Jo Sperber for establishing such a wonderful organization. Too give people hope and show caring makes a huge difference. Thank You weSpark for being a place of Sanctuary.

weSPARK is a special place. I know people who work there and have been affected by cancer in my family. I know the importance of a place like weSPARK and the support they provide. I wish weSPARK all the best and have seen such great stuff from this organization. I look forward to seeing weSPARK help more families.

I do not have direct experience working with weSPARK or taking advantage of the services they offer, so my writing here seemed inconsequential at first. But then I realized that my writing here is a sign of the absolute necessity and vitality of the weSPARK program within the community. The support and services provided here make real differences in real lives: when you are feeling lost and overwhelmed with new information, and it feels like you are facing a mountain of bureaucracy with insurance companies, and you need someone to just listen to how you are feeling and to help guide you through the emotional turmoil of it all, weSPARK gives you that space... they ARE that Someone to listen to and guide you. The impact of weSPARK goes far beyond the newly-diagnosed patient. They provide specialized support for patients during and after treatment, for caregivers and families of patients, for teens and for men and for breast cancer patients, and even for bereaved loved ones mourning a loss... that kind of ripple effect leaves imprints on the entire community, and improves lives that are maybe even once or twice removed from a patient. And, of course, the staff and volunteers are forever changed by this experience, as well. As an artist, my favorite services at weSPARK are the creative programs; through meditation, exercise, art, writing, jewelry-making, and even makeovers, they create a way for patients to transform grief and anguish into something beautiful and uplifting, and to feel better about their quality of life throughout treatment and post-treatment. This is just a beautiful and necessary part of the community, and I want to see it thrive.
