Founded in 2001 as a response to a lack of support for children of cancer patients, weSPARK Cancer Support has since expanded to include a wide variety of services for anyone affected by cancer in the Los Angeles area.
Assisting 2,000 individuals every year, weSPARK delivers an impressive roster of holistic and therapeutic classes, workshops, and support groups. Yoga, meditation, reiki, guided imagery, nutritional counseling, jewelry making, and creative writing are among the daily offerings in weSPARK’s light-filled rooms. weSPARK takes special care to bring together clients who are in similar situations, for example, undergoing treatment or post-treatment, in order to best address their needs. Programs include training for caregivers as well as bereavement counseling. All programming is provided free of charge.
More recently, weSPARK’s Spanish speaking program has taken off to much success. Many workshops are now offered in Spanish, including yoga classes! This furthers weSPARK’s initiative to reach as many people in need as possible.
weSPARK is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients, their families and friends. weSPARK provides, free of charge, multiple services designed to heal the mind, body and spirit of all those whose lives have been affected by cancer.
