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.
Our program manager, Anna Carnell (firstname.lastname@example.org), would be pleased to give you updates on current program offerings. Our front desk is staffed by volunteers who would be happy to register you in person, by phone or online. During office hours, our volunteers are pleased to offer you a tour of the facility on your first visit.
