My good friend goes to an exercise class a couple of times a week. The class means a great deal to her. She often talks to me about her wonderful teacher and the nice friends she has made. What a wonderful organization!

WeSPARK is an AMAZING place full of wonderful people who genuinely care about the community in which they live and want to make a difference in the lives of those suffering from cancer. The therapists, specialists, and volunteers are truly dedicated to this worthy cause and I have never met a more caring, warm, loving group of people in my life. They are changing lives every day and this truly is, in my opinion, the BEST cancer-fighting non-profit around! Great job, weSPARK!

WeSPARK has wonderful services for cancer patients and their families. I wish these services were available for my mom 15 years ago. She would have really enjoyed the support groups, guided imagery and energy sessions.

WeSPARK is the best Cancer Support Center I have seen. Its staff and volunteers go above and beyond the call of duty here, which is significant alone. They add a "spark" of inspiration to all whom they care for and their families. I highly recommend them.

WeSPARK is like AA and Alinon for Cancer patients and their families. Every disease needs an outlet program and WeSPARK provides that for everyday people living with the difficulties and hardships of cancer.

I love WeSPARK's Cancer Support Center. They went above and beyond their duty when my sister was in crisis - her husband was in the final stage of his brain tumor and they were fantastic! Very kind, caring and supportive with my sister and her two small children. My overall rating of them is FANTASTIC!
