Helping people live better with cancer.
Wellspring supplies a range of programs to provide cancer patients and their loved ones with connection and belonging, ease physical pain and emotional distress, build strength and mobility, and reduce fatigue - all free of charge.
Every day in Canada, over 600 men, women and children are diagnosed with cancer. At some point in their journey, almost every one of these people will experience potentially crippling emotional, physical or practical challenges that the health care system is unable to address. This is where Wellspring makes such a profound difference.
Wellspring provides cancer patients with the supportive care programs and services that help them improve the quality of their lives, all at no charge.
Every year, Wellspring provides supportive care for more than 10,000 people across Canada, both in our centres and online. Wellspring receives no government or hospital funding, and it is only through the generosity of grateful patients, generous donors, corporate partners and event participants that Wellspring is able to provide this type of care so desperately needed by those with cancer, and their loved ones.
Hearing the words “you have cancer” can be debilitating. Six hundred Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every day, and 80% have significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges that go well beyond the important medical treatments they receive in hospital. That’s where Wellspring fits in.
At Wellspring, people living with cancer can exchange information, develop a support system and create a sense of hope in a warm, caring community. A network of registered charities, Wellspring offers programs and services that meet the emotional, social, physical and practical needs of people living with cancer and those who care for them.
Across Canada last year, Wellspring served over 10,000 individuals with members noting improvement to their health, wellbeing and overall quality of life. We seek to reach significantly more people next year with your help!
