Over the past year LifeMark Centric has taken up its own fight in the care of cancer patients, with a goal of improving the rehabilitation services provided to cancer survivors. Through our Cancer Rehab Canada program we are assisting individuals in their recovery from the side effects of cancer treatment at 45 locations across the country.

The LifeMark Centric cycling team rode to raise funds and awareness for cancer patients who continue to struggle to regain their lives and live up to their full potential. One day we hope to see a cure for cancer and ensure that the 1 million+ cancer survivors in Canada are active and empowered to be all that they can be.
