The Jim Cormier Canal Walk once again will be held at the Cape Cod Canal on September 22, 2019. We invite you to join us in this event honoring Jim and continuing our partnership with the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) in raising awareness of the disease, while funding research and educational endeavors sponsored by PFF. Through your generosity over the previous three events, $30,000 has been donated to PFF.

In addition to our walk, we have participated in the New York City PFF walks in Central Park while Jim and Kristen joined in the Riverside Park event. Last fall, Mary Beth and Stephanie participated in the PFF volunteer conference in Chicago where patients, caregivers, transplant recipients, researchers, care center directors and coordinators met to discuss journeying through the maze of this disease. It was heartwarming to hear stories of daily life with IPF, new life through transplantation, the present and future of research. Walking away from those two days gave a sense of hope for the future. Since the start of our journey in 2010, the field of research and care has expanded to include numerous trials, new drugs, support groups and far more information for the patients and families. These are all due to the generosity of those who have and continue to donate to PFF.

In joining us on September 22nd, let’s continue to remember a wonderful man, who lived life to the fullest, always looking forward to the next challenge to solve, and taken far too soon. Jim always believed in second chances and therefore, per his wishes, his last act of kindness was to Donate Life.

With love,

The Cormier Family
