People living with cancer in Alberta are fortunate to have exceptional medical resources to treat their disease, but where can they turn for help with the mind, body and spirit aspects of a cancer experience?
At Wellspring, we understand that cancer can have a profound effect on the person diagnosed and their loved ones. They need a place to turn when they are feeling fearful, uncertain and alone. They need to be around skilled and caring people who get it, and can offer compassion, support, practical information, and tools to cope. They may need help navigating the employment, financial and insurance challenges of cancer.
Wellspring Calgary was founded in 2007 with a mission to meet the emotional, social and practical needs of people living with cancer. Our vision is to ensure no one has to face cancer alone. Since inception, we have continually grown to meet the demand for cancer support and we have expanded our services to meet the needs of all those living with cancer across southern Alberta.
Wellspring offers a vast array of evidence-informed programs and services, all free of charge and without referral to any southern Alberta resident who has cancer, as well as caregivers and family members. Programs and services are available online, over the phone, and in person.
Wellspring does not receive core government or agency funding. Instead, we rely on the generosity of the community and people like you to ensure no one has to face cancer alone.
Your generosity reopens doors and improves the lives of all those we are privileged to serve. Thank you for considering Wellspring.
