Wellspring Edmonton

Edmonton is looking to open a Wellspring Cancer Support Center within the next three years.

As per their website ...

Who is Wellspring?

Wellspring is an innovative network of centers providing high-quality cancer support, education and coping skills to a growing number of individuals, family members and professional caregivers in Canada.

What does Wellspring do?

Wellspring helps people restore the dignity and control they so often lose when diagnosed with cancer. Wellspring is about helping people feel that they will be able to cope when cancer strikes them or one of their family members. Wellspring is about helping people live with cancer.

Wellspring programs are free of charge and open to individuals and caregivers who are coping with any type of cancer, at any stage. They include individual and group support, coping skills, expressive therapies, energy work and educational workshops and presentations and are housed at warm, non-institutional Wellspring centers.

Wellspring works!! I seriously hope they do open one in Edmonton. I have been to the one here in Toronto (there are a few chapters) and it is an incredibly caring, informative and comforting place. So many workshops, therapies, support groups. Simply wonderful!!!

Hey, I can look again but I didn't see a place to add yourself as a follower of your cancer blog.

Never mind. Now I found it. For some reason it didn't show up the first time

Sounds like the Wellness Community in the US, which I would recommend to your American readers.
