weSPARK Cancer Support Center
March 28, 2012

After some resistance to the idea, my son began attending support groups at weSpark while he was going through chemotherapy for advanced colon cancer. The support he got, and in some cases the support he was able to give to others in the groups, meant a great deal to him. Although, at times he felt too sick to do anything else, he wanted to attend. In December, shortly before he died, and in a very weak condition, it was important to him to get to weSpark in order to say thank you and goodbye. His request to family and friends was, in lieu of flowers etc. and in his memory, to please make a donation to weSpark. I'm very grateful for the existence of weSpark, and their amazing facilitators, who create this much needed support.
