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

Rating: 5 stars  

After being diagnosed with a rare, inoperable, cancer (pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors) I felt sonewhat devestated. The hospital social worker reccomended We Spark in Sherman Oaks for complementary and supportive therapies as well as a variety of support groups and special events. Their services are free to cancer patients AND their caregivers. The people at We Spark have been incredibly helpful and supportive. I go there for yoga, reiki massage, reflexology, meditation, art classes, acupuncture, suppprt group sessions, and more. I am so very thankful for their services that help me physically and emotionally deal with having a rare, slow growing cancer. My doctorscsay they have patients who live 10, 15, 20 years after diagnosis and We Spark will be a part of my life for as long as I am able to go there. Not only have they helped me deal with the emotional trauma of living with cancer, I am convinced that the services they provide have helped my bodyvtake tge best advantage of my cancer treatments. They have fun fundraising events like their annual 5/10 K run/walk on the backlot at Universal Studios, their food truck events, movie premiers, and more. I could never afford the kind of complementary therapies they provide and they never ask for money or donations. It is a joy to go tgere as all of the people in the organization are so caring and supportive. I can't say enough good things about this exceptional nonprofit!
