The Healing Cycle Foundation wishes to honour the end-of-life journey taken by those living with a life-threatening illness, by raising and stewarding funds in support of hospice palliative care programs that compassionately uphold the dignity of individuals at the end of their life and their loved ones.
With the belief that dying is a part of living, our aim is to support individuals and their families through a difficult life passage in the hope that the experience will be manageable and meaningful. We value the quality of end-of-life and believe that individuals and their families should receive physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual support during the hospice palliative care journey.

The Healing Cycle Ride Any hospice palliative care organization that wants to raise money through our annual Healing Cycle Ride in Mississauga can enter a team. 100% of the funds raised by each hospice palliative care team will go directly back to its organization.
Grant Opportunities Hospice palliative care organizations within Ontario can apply for grants from the Healing Cycle Foundation.
