Wellspring Calgary has been delivering supportive care since March 2007 to those living with cancer, their families and primary caregivers. Services are available free of charge and without referral to anyone living with cancer at any point on their journey.
Modeled after a successful network of eight centres, the Calgary centre was founded by John Stephure, Rita Egizii and Barbara Cunnings-Versaevel, and is the first Wellspring in Western Canada.
Programs and resources supporting mind-body-spirit learning are informed by evidence and facilitated by professional leaders in their respective fields. Open to the public, the Wellspring Calgary Speaker Series features leading experts in the cancer field.
The work of Wellspring Calgary is funded solely through the generosity of donors and supporters; we receive no core government or agency funding. Donations are gratefully accepted and are CRA tax receiptable.
10,187 volunteer hours in 2013 enabled Wellspring to provide programs and support to those we serve. Over 200 volunteers shared their time and talent to ensure Wellspring Calgary’s smooth operation.
20,198 hours of programming was delivered to 2,474 members in 2013.
Wellspring Calgary collaborates with and is endorsed by healthcare professionals in the supportive cancer care community.
Wellspring Calgary regularly gathers member feedback to measure and validate the benefits and value of the programs provided.
Wellspring Calgary is sincerely grateful for the support of community hosted fundraisers. Wellspring Calgary hosts two signature fundraisers each year: Toupee for a Day and triWELLathon.
