About The Vancouver Friends For Life Society
The Vancouver Friends For Life Society serves as a catalyst to enhance the wellness of individuals living with a life threatening illness by providing complementary and alternative health and support services.

Friends For Life was incorporated in 1993 as a not-for-profit society under British Columbia's Society Act. Friends For Life was started to meet the needs of people confronting the challenges of the 1990s HIV/ AIDS epidemic. Today, Friends For Life provides services to persons with any life-threatening illness including cancer and Hepatitis C.

In 1995 Friends For Life opened the Diamond Centre For Living, North America's only comprehensive wellness centre offering programs and services in a drop-in facility, free-of-charge, to people with life-threatening illness.
