Since our merger with the Montreal Chest Institute (MCI) Foundation in April 2021, we have raised millions of dollars to support breathtaking research and breath-giving care at the MCI.

Among the life-changing programs at the MCI is the Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) Clinic. ILD is a group of diseases characterized by inflammation and scarring in the lungs, which make it difficult for patients to breathe. Though ILD has no cure, the clinic’s team is committed to improving quality of life for their patients. Severe COVID-19 causes ILD in some cases, which means the expert, compassionate care they provide is needed more than ever. Their ultimate goal? Allow patients to live the rest of their lives comfortable and happy.

The work of the ILD Clinic and the MCI are possible thanks to our many generous donors. Special thanks to Paul Beattie, Denis Beaudoin, William Eakin, Richard Esber, the Jones family, and John and Caroline Kalaydjian for their support.
