I started taking yoga at We Spark about a year after I had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. I feel so comfortable there. Everyone there is so nice and people are made to feel welcome. No judgements are made and there is an upspoken message that I feel there that we all share a common challenge and the same goals.

As a nursing student preparing a presentation on a health topic (I chose cancer), I thought, where would one go -- in the community -- if one needed emotional support for this anxiety- producing diagnosis? In my research, I found WeSPARK, called them explaining my request as to the details of what they were and what they did. They invited me for interviews, tours, and gave me so much information. The staff is phenomenal -- the environment healing. Indoors as well as outdoors. Just beautiful. Their programs are so well thought out and comforting, to those diagnosed, as well as family and friends. I was encouraged to ask questions -- they seemed to have endless patience. What a diamond of an organization to give so much in so many different ways. How comforting it is to me frequently meeting -- or knowing people recently diagnosed, that there is somewhere wonderful I can recommend for them to check out. It is a jewel of a resource, and those who have inspired such a creative healing center most definitely has helped me understand the nature of true caring.

This is a wonderful organization. It is important to have resources like this for those who are suffering or have someone suffering from cancer and of course free of charge.

WeSpark has been very helpful for my Mother during her breast cancer treatment. She has been much happier since she started attending group therapy sessions and enjoys the friends she's made.

a close personal friend of mine used the services of wespark extensively as part of her recovery from breast cancer. the facility was close to where she lived, and the various programs offered were instrumental in her physical, mental and emotional recovery. i am very grateful for the program and recommend it to anyone in a similar situation.
