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

Rating: 5 stars  

I was SO relieved to discover WeSPARK. I had recently been through the trauma of two brain surgeries and radiation in less than a year after discovering I had 4 brain tumors. I was completely overwhelmed and didn't even know how to move forward. It continues to be a struggle with ongoing treatment and getting used to a life of frequent doctors visits and having to acquaint myself with the 'new normal' for me.

WeSPARK has given me a community of people and compassionate staff that really understand what it's like to go through an emotional and physical journey such as this, especially at a time when I had become very good at isolating myself. I've participated in their 'Drum Circles' and frequently have utilized services such as acupuncture--which have helped alleviate my anxiety and started to calm some of the neuropathy I have from surgery. I am unbelievably happy WeSPARK exists as a resource for myself and others.
