They say "it takes a village, to raise a child". It also takes a community to help those suffering from cancer…
As many of you know, I lost my mother last summer in a difficult 6-year battle with ovarian cancer. Anyone who has ever gone through this, or knows someone who has will tell you it really does takes a community of people to help take care of someone fighting for their life. For my family, that community included a wonderful organization, Wellspring.
Wellspring helped my mother work through some very tough things, and were amazing support to our family assisting in our grieving process. It's a wonderful place for families (just like us!) to go and feel safe, and supported by a group of people who are going through the exact same thing.
Wellspring doesn’t receive government funding and are reliant on private donations and other fundraising initiatives to do they great things they do. This year our family has decided that our annual donation to Wellspring wasn't enough and we have organized a fundraiser.
The tickets for our fundraising event are $25 and will include a drink and appetizers. We will also have live music, a silent auction and some fantastic prizes.
If you are able, please join us to support a great cause.
Thank you for choosing to support Wellspring Calgary.
