In 2007 Abigayle Clarke’s grandpa Chris passed away from a disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. In the past 12 years, Abbie has lost several other family members, including her Auntie Cathy and cousin Johnny Clarke who all died from Pulmonary Fibrosis. Abbie also has a cousin Rayyan who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis at the age of one and has been battling the disease for the last 11 years and is on oxygen 24/7. Shortly after the passing of Cathy, Abbie’s Auntie Shelley (Rayyan’s mother) got sick with pulmonary fibrosis, which led to a lung transplant in March 2015. All of this made Abbie really scared and sad, as she didn’t quite understand what was going on. Her mother, Amanda Clarke explained everything, but Abbie still didn’t understand. She asked lots of questions and that helped her learn more. Then Abbie discovered that there were a lot of other people who did not know about Pulmonary Fibrosis. Abbie decided to do something about this terrible disease by organizing a run/walk to help Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (CPFF) to raise awareness and funds to hopefully find a cure. This walk will be our 5th annual Clarke Walk for Pulmonary Fibrosis. All funds raised will go to the Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.
Please join Abbie and her family on Sunday September 13, 2020 to help raise awareness and funds to continue our work.
