I was fortunate to meet Wendi Jo many years ago when Wespark was getting off the ground.I have personally watched as Wepark grew. Always thru hard work and dedication of its volunteers and members.They do so much with so little and fill a huge void. They know more about there issue than most. This is due to most of there staff being personally involved in there issue. I donate to WeSpark every year becasue I know that every dollar goes to helping people, not like alot of other big foundations.

Two of my friends who underwent the terribly traumatic experience of having breast cancer turned to weSpark in search of a dedicated and caring support group. They spoke so highly of the organization that I felt compelled to become a donor. I've also had the opportunity to attend several tai chi classes held there. Seeing those survivors participating in the class and sharing it with them brings a whole new meaning to the words hope and peace. It is indeed a privilege to be part of such a meaningful organization!

We Spark offers a unique environment for patients and their families who are suffering with cancer. They give people a place to go where they can garner support and advice. Sherman Oaks is very lucky to have this center.

I am fortunate to have had the honor of supporting this organization from its inception, and blessed to never have had to access the remarkable benefits of its staff and services. As a member of the community I believe that weSPARK is the essence of providing the right support to the most basic needs of people faced with these challenges, and that is compassion and the tools to be a warrior in their own lives. As an artist it is always my honor to support in my own small way by giving of my work and I will continue to do so.

WeSPARK is a tremendous organization with heart. They have helped so many families dealing with cancer. Their activities and support groups are invaluable to the people who need them. I have been a WeSPARK supporter for years. Their contribution to the community has brought awareness and hope to many who had lost faith that the world could be a better place.
