What Can Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House Do For You?

More than 85 per cent of cancer patients experience the non-medical consequences of cancer and its treatment: the fear, anxiety, pain, isolation, financial worries and guilt. Through one-to-one peer support, group support activities, learned coping skills, rehabilitation and nutrition programs, and much, much more, Wellspring has helped thousands of people take an active role in controlling their cancer experience to improve their quality of life.
