Help us continue Robert Davidson’s legacy

There is no doubt that Robert Davidson, CPFF’s late founder would have been the first person to ask how CPFF could help people living with PF during the COVID-19 pandemic. He would then have got to work helping those needing information, reassurance and support in these uncertain times. May 1, 2020, marks the one-year anniversary of the passing of Robert Davidson, who lived with IPF and established the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) in 2009, less than two years after his own diagnosis and a few months before receiving a double-lung transplant.

He founded the organization to raise funds for research, to provide reliable information to the public, patients and governments and to offer support programs to those affected by pulmonary fibrosis.

Within 10 years, CPFF raised more than $1 million to invest in research, including funding several Robert Davidson clinical fellowships, launched the CPFF website, established support groups across the country, developed a Canadian Patient Charter and successfully advocated for improved access to anti-fibrotic medications in all provinces and territories.

“There is no doubt that CPFF owes its existence to the determination and hard work of Robert,” says Kirk Morrison, Chair of the CPFF Board. “He was an inspiration to so many, including others living with IPF, their families, volunteers and researchers.”

You can help us continue Robert’s legacy of helping Canadians with pulmonary fibrosis, especially during these frightening times. We need your help to provide the virtual resources our vulnerable community needs to stay informed, supported and connected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please make a donation in Robert’s memory today. He would thank you.
