LifeLabs provides laboratory services to help physicians and other healthcare providers in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of disease and illness in patients.
Each year, LifeLabs provides more than 50 million laboratory tests to over 10 million patients and nearly 20,000 physicians in Canada.
LifeLabs has proudly supported the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life since 1999 and has been sponsoring the event since 2001. LifeLabs initiated their support as the event sponsor of the Mississauga, Ontario event and then became the provincial luminary sponsor in Ontario. As the series of events has grown nationally, so has LifeLabs’ corporate commitment.
This level of support underscores the company's commitment to Relay and the Society in general.
