Wellspring Niagara’s Annual Campaign

Serving the entire Niagara Region, in 2023, Wellspring Niagara registered 7578 program visits – an increase of nearly 37% from the previous year – and saw a 29.5% increase in new member registration.

Cancer affects many people in our region. We want to ensure everyone has access to a safe place where they are understood and treated like family and have programs available to meet their needs.

Wellspring Niagara is a non-profit charitable organization. Without government, hospital, or core funding, we rely solely on the financial support of our community. With your generous contribution, we will continue providing programs and services for men, women, and children in a safe and supportive community.

By donating to Wellspring Niagara’s Annual Campaign, you can make a real difference in the lives of cancer patients like Megan

Wellspring 62 (1)

By supporting Wellspring Niagara, you have created a community for thousands of people impacted by cancer in the Niagara region—people like Megan from Virgil. As a teacher, she felt isolated during a challenging time when many of her friends and family were still working, so she reached out to Wellspring Niagara.

“Wellspring means family to me.”

Coming here, it was like night and day for me. I came here with cane, bent over. When I did the exercise, in no time I got rid of my cane. I could walk upright.
