Our Mission

Friends For Life has four objectives; we raise money for cancer research, compassionate patient care, teaching at the Princess Margaret Hospital, as well as promotion of the unrelated bone marrow registry. We hope that our efforts will help to find a permanent cure for all cancers. You can help us reach our goals to cure cancer.
We can only do this with your commitment and involvement. Share in our dedication to fighting cancer and our vision to eventually conquering the disease.


Our Story

In the 19 years since our inception, we have raised over 1.5 million dollars for PMHF. With this money, we have established a Bone Marrow Transplant Data Management Program that will enable Princess Margaret Hospital to evaluate effectively the clinical research in the area of bone marrow transplant.

The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation works with health care and research professionals, patients, their families and the community to ensure Princess Margaret Hospital remains one of the world's premier cancer centres. Investing its communities contributions in breakthrough cancer research, compassionate patient care and education has brought The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation closer to achieving its vision and conquering cancer.

Princess Margaret Hospital is a place of hope and caring, where the patient is the focal point of all programs and the inspiration behind all efforts. PMH is a place that nurtures a tradition of excellence in research and education. Most importantly, it is where people with cancer come to fight the odds and more often then not, win.
