Your gift to Winterlark, the annual fundraiser for the Cancer Patient Support Program, is needed now more than ever. 

We all know someone who has been affected by cancer – a family member, a friend, a neighbor. It can be a long difficult road. Our Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP), is truly at the heart of our Comprehensive Cancer Center, providing patients and caregivers with the type of patient support that we know is vital to those facing a cancer diagnosis. This year more than ever we need our community to come together to support this important program. 

At Wake Forest Baptist Health, the Cancer Patient Support Program (CPSP) offers patients and their families individual and group counseling, support groups, patient aid, and other healing and holistic therapies designed to ease the cancer journey.

What is Winterlark and how is it different this year?

This year the signature event supporting the CPSP – Winterlark has been reimagined from an in-person black-tie gala to a virtual campaign. Instead of one wonderful evening, the 38th annual Winterlark is being celebrated throughout the month of February. 

Join us in Support of Cancer Patients and Their Families

There are many opportunities to support the Cancer Patient Support Program at Wake Forest Baptist Health.  You can become a peer-to-peer fundraiser or support one of the champions already raising funds.  You can also make an individual or corporate gift.  A contribution of any amount will help provide CPSP services to patients.  Your gift will also be a reflection of how our community has come together to ensure that no one faces cancer alone.
