Health & Wellness

About Health and Wellness

Good health is so important to our lives and the lives of our families. Sparkt's Health & Wellness section is where you'll find stories of hope in the face of physical challenges and great information on getting well and staying healthy.

You'll be inspired by the stories of people fighting for survival and a healthy future and the people helping them in their battles. Watch the moment a woman finds out her daughter's kindergarten teacher is the perfect match for the kidney transplant she desperately needs. Meet the nurse who adopted a homeless man with autism so he could get on the list to get a new heart. And it makes us feel good to share the Health and Wellness stories of people who have found great ways that anyone can use to overcome health challenges. Like the nationwide boxing program that helps people with Parkinson's manage the symptoms of their disease. The cutting- edge light procedure that allowed our founder Marty Griffin avoid mouth sores during radiation for throat cancer. And the app Marty's wife Kristine discovered to manage communicating with friends and family during his treatments.

As always, we have plenty of links so you can easily find what you need to take advantage of these Health & Wellness ideas. And we'll tell you how to support those individuals and families in our stories who need your help at the toughest time in their lives.
