To provide quality of life empowerment and enhancement services to people with life-challenging conditions as well as to their family, friends and caregivers.
Formed in 1996, Friends For Life Society was founded on the core realization that while although there were many services aiding people life-challenging illnesses - the unmet need was complementary programs that could enhance the healing process. Through a diverse set of programs Friends For Life seeks to expand accessibility to a full spectrum of healing techniques, offer guidance, bolster community support, and provide a bridge so that people do not have to struggle alone. Towards this goal Friends For Life; * Provides a centralized source for health care information * Focuses on the positive aspects of healing in partnership with the health care community * Approaches each situation with a focus on the well-being of the individual rather than the illness alone * Offers vital services to people coping with any life-challenging illness
