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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a Board Member and volunteer at weSPARK since its inception. I have had the opportunity to watch it grow and serve an increasing part of the community. Its services have been so well thought of that several hospitals and other institutions have referred their patients and invited weSPARK to provide programs at their locations.

In the last year, weSPARK expanded its reach by offering services on the web.This will make weSPARK an even more valuable part of a much larger community. It will free them from the geographical constraints and allow them and their programs to touch many more lives of cancer patients, their families and friends in the same positive ways.

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

Rating: 5 stars  

weSPARK is a unique experience which is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients and their families and friends. As a companion to the medical treatment a patient receives, the weSPARK programs are designed to help those affected by cancer to cope with what is probably the scariest experience they have ever had. All of the programs are free because funds are raised and more than 80 cents of every dollar goes to programming.

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

expand the delivery of services to other geographic areas and allow 10 times as many people benefit. Since a high percentage of those who come to weSPARK for services end up as volunteers; it must be a great experience.
