Picture This’ artist Terry Isaac has donated an original painting “Wings on Water” to help raise funds for the new cancer support centre Wellspring Edmonton. The painting was presented during the Wellspring Shine Art Auction, that took place in early February at the Enjoy Centre in St Albert, AB.
Wellspring Edmonton; this centre will be a warm, welcoming, home-like environment where people will be supported to live well during and beyond cancer. The center will be open to anyone diagnosed with any type of cancer, at any stage, along with their families, friends and caregivers. Wellspring Edmonton programs will be available free of charge, delivered by professionals and trained volunteers – most of whom have experienced cancer and want to help others on their journey. It will be a place where people can connect with others who know what they are going through – because they have been there themselves.
In Alberta, 41 people are diagnosed with cancer every day. In the next 20 years, that number is expected to jump to 80 people per day. While medical care for cancer patients in Alberta is among the best in the world, most people need more than treatment. They need help to heal from the crisis of body, mind and spirit that comes with a cancer diagnosis. They need a Wellspring of support… Wellspring Edmonton is the dream of a dedicated and growing group of volunteers who are working to make it a reality. It is expected that by 2012, the doors to this, much needed, cancer wellness centre will be open to provide the practical, emotional, physical and spiritual support that most people need when faced with a cancer diagnosis. Once built, Wellspring Edmonton will become part of an existing network of 14 community-based Wellspring centers across Canada.
