Nearly 10 years ago I met Wendie Jo Sperber for a cup of tea. Within 15 minutes she fully described her vision for weSPARK. Within 12 months that vision was a reality. For 10 years that reality has served thousands of cancer patients as well as their friends and families. There can be no greater gift than to leave behind a legacy that serves.

I have worked at weSPARK for over five years now, and I can honestly say that what we do here is really unique. Our support groups and classes help you cope with the emotional pain and devastation that come with a cancer diagnoses. Whether it’s through qi gong, yoga, support groups or reiki, we get you through some of your darkest moments. I have seen many wonderful people walk through these doors and it is very rare to not hear how grateful they are to have found us. I am honored to be a part of Wendie's dream.
