weSPARK Cancer Support Center
July 31, 2009

Hello Internet, A close friend of mine, Wendie, started this support group about 15 years ago out of her home in Sherman Oaks. In little time she found a location and a platform to spread her cause of cancer knowledge and awareness through a storefront on Ventura Blvd. This place became a supporting and peaceful environment through which people could explore and delve into their health issue with positivity and encouragement. She created a cost free place where guests can interact in a place that feels like a home and not some room in a building someplace. An environment that was built for you to clear your mind and acknowledge yourself in a stimulating and positive way and let you know that you are not in this by yourself, that you have support from others, who care and have experience. If you or anyone you know is affected by cancer in any way shape or form, I can't suggest WeSPARK enough. It has helped myself and countless amounts of other people battle their biggest battle. Do yourself a favor and call.
