weSPARK Cancer Support Center
July 16, 2009

weSPARK provides an understanding community in a cozy home atmosphere in many people's greatest time of need. They have a huge selection of supportive and creative programs and encourage everyone to try as many of them as they would like. The wonderful staff, volunteers, and other guests are always there to listen and support one another. I recommend weSPARK to every cancer patient and their family members that I meet.

The Great!

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

the smiling faces of their guests and the stories I have heard about how weSPARK saved their lives.

Ways to make it better...

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

try to attract to new donors so that weSPARK could provide services to more people in need.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the truly unique experience. They have the best staff, facilitators, instructors, volunteers etc. The atmosphere is relaxed and instantly makes you feel comfortable. They strive to live up to their mission and surpass its goals everyday.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, compassionate, understanding, intelligent, warm people. They have an open door policy and guests are welcome to talk to anyone, anytime they need someone to talk to or just to sit with.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

change the face of cancer support services and help so many more people.

Ways to make it better...

more people donated to them to give them the ability to provide more services.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

size and parking. They are starting to outgrow their space.

One thing I'd also say is that...

the way there groups are structured is really unique. The groups are split up depending on where a person is in their stage of treatment. For example, a newly diagnosed person would never be in a group with someone dealing with end of life issues.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
