Cancer Support Outreach
Serving all of Alberta
Wellspring Alberta is committed to working with communities throughout the province to ensure cancer support communities exist closer to home.
The need for cancer support is significant. Wellspring Alberta is committed to supporting people living with cancer across the province to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone. As part of our five year strategic plan, and with support from Alberta Cancer Foundation, Wellspring Alberta has set in motion an operational plan to co-create sustainable cancer support communities in Alberta to meet the needs of those living with cancer in regional and remote areas outside the cities of Calgary and Edmonton.
Wellspring Alberta offers programs, services and support to people living with cancer – those diagnosed, caregivers and kids.
