Founded in 2006, Wellspring Calgary opened its doors in 2007 to welcome anyone living with any type of cancer (those diagnosed and their loved ones) at any point on their journey. In 2007, Wellspring started with 3,320 program hours made available to 156 registered members. In 2019, Wellspring Calgary delivered 40,035 hours of programs, available to over 6,700 members (cumulative since 2007).
Since COVID-19 temporarily closed our doors on March 13th, five months of online and phone programs supported approximately 760 people attending 146 new programs over 9000 times. That is the same number of people supported last year at this time, when our two centres were open and we were operating at full capacity.
Here’s a snapshot of our growth over time (2007 – 2019):
With more people each year being diagnosed with cancer, and thanks to excellent medical treatment living longer with and beyond cancer, we know that more is needed. And we need you to meet the need.
