The Support We All Need

Wellspring is a Canada-wide network of charities, offering programs and services, at no charge and without referral, to anyone, with any type of cancer, at any stage in their journey.

The Need

Hearing the words “you have cancer” is life changing. Over 650 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every day, and 80% have significant physical, emotional, and financial challenges that go well beyond the important medical treatments they receive in hospital.  That’s where Wellspring fits in.
