About Wellspring Calgary
A cancer diagnosis can be devastating. It brings countless life-altering moments and events for the people who receive the diagnosis and for those who love them. People with cancer are compelled to find a new “normal,” before, during and after treatment. Priorities shift, relationships change, life is … different. At Wellspring, people living with cancer tell us what helps them the most having access to information, receiving support, and learning new ways to cope.
Wellspring Calgary is a charitable organization which supports, informs and empowers those diagnosed with cancer by helping them address the fear, isolation, disruption and practical problems which cancer can bring to their lives. In operation since 2007 and an affiliate of the Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation, Wellspring Calgary provides a comprehensive range of programs, support, resources and programs so anyone living with cancer and the people who care about them can improve the quality of their lives.
All programs and services are informed by evidence and offered free of charge and without referral in a warm, caring, and welcoming community-based centre nestled in the trees near the Bow River. Wellspring Calgary's work is made possible through the generous donations of individuals, corporations, foundations and grassroots fundraisers, and with the efforts of committed volunteers, dedicated staff and skilled facilitators.
Our Vision: No one has to face cancer alone.
Our Mission: Wellspring Calgary is a warm and welcoming community that provides a comprehensive range of support, resources and programs so anyone living with cancer and the people who care about them can improve the quality of their lives.
