weSPARK Cancer Support Center
August 1, 2009
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.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting a few cancer survivors who have been served by WeSPARK.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
The phenomenal efforts with the staff to create such a harmonious healing environment.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Directors, nurse practitioners, administrative assistants.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Set up satellite locations across the world; be a wonderful asset to research for cures which undoubtedly would happen.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
