Scarcely a person in this country has been untouched by cancer, either by a personal diagnosis or by knowing and loving someone who has been diagnosed. The disease must be combated physically, but also psychologically and emotionally. weSPARK provides a variety of programs and opportunities for social exchange to all people at no cost, regardless of income, race, religious affiliation, age or where they go for treatment.
