I, myself don't have cancer or know anyone in my life who does. I donate in Valerie Harper's name. I like the services weSpark provides. As a bonus, it's run by Nancy Allen who is also a hero of mine. It makes me feel good to help someone who needs it. If I can help make a difference on another persons' life, that makes me feel good. So good luck to Nancy and all her staff at weSpark.

weSpark is such a great organization! I first heard about them from my cousin, who had cancer. She encouraged a lot of our family to join her on their yearly walk-a-thon. She said that weSpark helped her so much that she believed they literally extended her life; they helped keep her positive through an extremely difficult time. I know how many people they are helping and I thank them for being there for all of them.

WeSpark was so vitally helpful to my cousin while she went through her three years with cancer, fighting for her life. The organization gave her hope with their good work. And, with hope, miracles can happen. Although she didn't survive past the three years, she was so grateful to those at WeSpark who help her through that time. Thank You, WeSpark!

weSPARK Cancer Support Center is one of a kind. I personally knew the founder and the reason for the very existence of weSPARK was her personal desire to have a place for cancer patients, their families and friends to go for non-medical support. They have everything from support groups to art classes for children. It's a positive, uplifting place where you are surrounded by people who understand the time you are living through. I recommend weSPARK to people on almost a daily basis. An incredibly deserving non-profit. Please support weSPARK Cancer Support Center. Sincerely, Barbara Epstein

I have been working with weSPARK Cancer Support Center since the beginning. For anyone who is on the journey with cancer, post cancer or whose family is traveling that road with them, we SPARK is the place to go. Varied and helpful programs await, and a warm, experienced staff to help guide them. LA doesn't have any other place like it. I'm thrilled to have been a part of and continue to be to this day. Their founder was a close, close personal friend, and she would be happy and proud that this is her legacy.~ Barbara Epstein

I live in northern California, and have been involved with weSPARK for the past several years. I am impressed with the organization.....so much so that I have attended several local southern California events, as well as the 2011 WE trip to Honduras to visit the Adelante Foundation and its clients. I plan to continue to stay involved, and strongly believe in its mission. Thank you, Wendy Haydon

We Spark gave love and support to my friend Frank, Frank was a good friend and we miss him terribly, but I want to thank We Spark for making the time he had left easier for him and his wife.

Having the race course around Balboa park in Encino was a great idea. That location is very scenic. The people I knew who participated had a great time and were happy to support such a great cause. I wish WeSPARK all the best and plan to participate in future events and volunteer opportunities.

I lost my uncle last year to cancer; so, when I got to learn about WeSpark at the LA Roadrunenrs Charity Day Fair for the LA Marathon, I was so interested. They are doing wonderful work for people and their families facing such hardship.

My sister was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago. WeSpark gave her the support she truly needed and appreciated. She was given free wigs for her bald head, she took tai chi classes, got free Reiki treatments, went to support groups with other cancer patients. She loved WeSpark from the beginning. And now that her health is failing, she still will spark up at the name of WeSpark because of the tremendous love and support she got there.

I provided entertainment services for two of the We Spark Events. The people that attended (recipients of services from the organization) were most thankful to the organization and told me of the life changing activities provided by We Spark. A most positive and upbeat crowd thankful for the organization. It doesn't get any better. Regards, Paul Green

Hi, I am an entertainer and I have participated in a number of the fundraising events for WeSpark. This is a wonderful organization and many of the attendees of the events speak highly of the support they receive from WeSpark. I lend my talents to only a few select organizations--WeSpark is definately one of them.
