Review for weSPARK Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer, I felt very alone and scared. A friend who had received help from the many services that WeSpark offered, told me where to go to get started. They offered so many programs to help with stress (Yoga, Guided Imagery, Tai Chi...to name a few) and the support groups run by wonderful Tara, were of great help during a difficult time. They even helped me get some hats and wigs to prepare for the hair loss during chemo. Having an organization like this, offering programs for free to clients who are struggling with cancer, is a wonderful thing! Thank you, WeSpark!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving emotional support and participating in Guided Imagery classes to help with stress.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

figure out a way for them to be closer to Santa Clarita!

Role:  Client Served & I received support services during cancer treatment and was most interested in the group therapy.
