Double your impact today!

November 1, 2023

One in two of us will hear the words “you have cancer” in our lifetime1. You likely know someone touched by cancer ­– which means you know the mental, physical and emotional toll it takes on people and those who love them.

Take Adam, for instance. He was diagnosed with tongue cancer at age 61 and plunged into a world of unexpected anguish and uncertainty. His life became consumed with medical appointments, surgery, and radiation. Adam’s outlook shifted dramatically from retirement plans to the daunting tasks of relearning how to swallow and speak.

But when Adam joined Wellspring, he found renewed hope and a community that understood his journey.

But we need your help. With no core government funding, it is your contributions that enable us to sustain our life-changing programs, offering solace and healing to cancer patients, caregivers, and children across the province.

The good news? Your support can now go even further. Your donation will be matched, doubling its impact on the lives of individuals like Adam.

It’s what enables us to provide a wide range of vital programs and services from crucial education, financial assistance, and peer support to the healing power of activities like movement, meditation, and expressive arts.

In Alberta, Wellspring is the only organization that devotes itself exclusively to the unique non-medical needs of all people living with any type of cancer. Last year, we made significant strides thanks to the unwavering support of our donors.

Here are some highlights of the impact we collectively made:

  • The number of individuals served through Wellspring Alberta programs at Edmonton House has surged by 56% over the last 3 months!
  • We have been able to enlist 22 new Program Leaders across Alberta, allowing us to introduce new programs and support more people.
  • Initiating monthly in-person programs in Red Deer and Lethbridge marks the beginning of our mission to expand these services to Grande Prairie and Medicine Hat.

Please consider donating today to double the impact of your generosity. Your contribution, no matter the size, will make an incredible difference – because every resource available at Wellspring is 100% funded by people like you – thank you.
