From the moment you walk in the door and see Alexandra's smiling face to the various touches around the center, you know that here is a place that can help. During an emotional and heartrenching time you can finally come to a place that understands, a place that knows what you are going through and offers options that really make a difference it is a great comfort. From the volunteers to the paid staff this such a place.

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

many ways. But, recently I spoke with a volunteer, who was manning the reception area and it occurred to me how not only those who are served here benefit but the volunteers do as well.

The staff members that work for the WS center were amazing, they are caring, loving, fun and have great attitudes towards their work. They all love their jobs. You can immediately see the impact they make on all the people around them. All the different events they host like the runs/walks, golf tournaments, and adult groups are just a few ways they provide for those in need. Im glad to have been part of this group and cant wait to help them again!

I attended an event for WeSpark and was blown away by the level of organizationan and focus in its goals to create awareness and support in the fight against breast cancer. Information was abundant and I certainly walked away feeling more educated on the subject. The event was also fun and well run. There was a deep level of care and attention to a central yet easily relatable goal.

I have personally seen how this organization has lent support by seeing how it has impacted my cousin who had breast cancer as well as my sister who is beginning to involve herself and devote herself to supporting these kinds of causes.

We Spark has given me so many opportunities to help myself get the support I need to cope with my recovery from cancer treatment and it's affect on the mind and body. This is a warm and caring group that has had such an impact on my life. They understand that recovering from cancer does not stop after a treatment is done.
