I have been involved w/weSPARK for about 8 years -- originally taking advantage of the incredibly supportive services offered through this organization. The people that work here are extremely dedicated and committed to continuing the goals of Wendie Jo Sperber, the founder of weSPARK. I am now a volunteer and am gratified by being able to contribute in a "pay it forward" way. The activities offered here at no cost to the "guests" are physically, psychicly and emotionally advantageous to cancer survivors (including those continuing in treatment and post treatment) and and their families and friends. The atmosphere is supportive and upbeat yet recognizing and serving the needs of individuals.

I am a cancer survivor that was lucky enough to find this terrific organization. Initially I was in support groups, took advantage of many of the ongoing classes offered, and made numerous friends. This is a most caring organization dedicated to making the lives of cancer related patients, their friends and families realize they are not alone and will provide whatever help they can. I now volunteer when needed.
