My name is Laura Isidean, Board Chair for Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation.
I want to share with you my story, as well as a unique opportunity.
In 2014, after nearly two decades of working in capital markets, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. During this extremely difficult time, I turned to Wellspring. Having a warm and supportive place where I could access programs and services while I was undergoing treatment proved to be an integral part of my recovery.
Once I was well enough, I was committed to giving back to Wellspring as it had helped my family and me so much. I joined the Wellspring Board five years ago and became Chair in 2021.
And now I want to get involved by supporting this match campaign:
From now until October 31, I will provide a matching pledge of $30,000 in honour of Wellspring’s 30th anniversary. That means that for every dollar you donate during this time, I will provide a matching dollar.
As a member of the Wellspring family, you know first-hand how profoundly important it is to have emotional, social, physical and practical supports during the difficult days of cancer. You understand that belonging to a community that offers compassion, understanding, and empowering resources, can make all the difference in the world.
Please join me in donating to Wellspring today and help other individuals like you and me who are impacted by cancer.
