Review for weSPARK Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA
No matter how great a support system you are basically facing cancer alone unless you are with people who have had it themselves or deal with patients. Nobody else can really understand what a shock it is to know that you may have a terminal illness.
When I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ovarian friends and family were there for me, but couldn't hide how upset they were and expected the worst - understandable but very depressing..........and frightening.
Then a friend told me about weSpark and everything changed for me. The group classes with people going through the same thing, the private therapies and most of all everyone bright and cheerful even when you come in bald with a lovely green complexion nobody seemed to even notice. I could not have afforded the great therapies that have helped me so much.
I'm lucky to be in remission right now - but knowing weSpark and the wonderful staff are there for me relieves the fear of isolation and gives me the comfort that makes all the difference and I'll always be grateful.
