WHAT WE OFFER

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. Significant caregivers are welcome to attend programs since we recognize that cancer affects everyone, including family and friends.

Below is a sampling of more than 30 programs that are offered during a typical four-month period, with programs offered in Winter, Spring/Summer and Fall.
