What You Can Expect

IMG_2525Becoming a Member

We know that taking that first step toward seeking help is difficult. But we’ve made it easy to become a Wellspring member. Simply complete the online membership form, and you will be invited to meet with one of our friendly and helpful peer support volunteers who will help you with the next steps. These volunteers have also gone through a cancer experience, and you will find they are a powerful and welcoming first step to help you on your road to well-being.

What to Expect

Being part of the compassionate and understanding Wellspring community means having the opportunity to talk with others who have been through cancer, to access experts, and to share knowledge and experience in a warm, safe, encouIMG_2434raging and non-clinical environment. Every person who visits Wellspring is unique. Our peer support volunteers work closely with you to identify resources and program options that will best meet your particular needs based on where you are on your cancer journey.
