Experience the benefits of Wellspring

When a parent is diagnosed with cancer, families face stress and fear, bringing difficulties into a household. Families dealing with cancer often experience communication barriers, academic struggles, and emotional turmoil. For children who have a significant adult in their life with cancer, finding age-appropriate information, emotional support, and connections with peers in similar situations is crucial.

Wellspring Alberta understands those specific needs and offers programs specifically for families where an adult has been diagnosed with cancer. Join us in a supportive environment where families can navigate this journey together, finding strength, resilience, and hope every step of the way.
