Montreal Chest Institute Foundation

Thousands of Quebecers and millions around the world fight to breathe. They are living with asthma, lung cancer, cystic fibrosis and other respiratory diseases. Unfortunately, many will die prematurely. This is why we need your help.

Since 1909, the Montreal Chest Institute (MCI) of the McGill University Health Centre has been providing compassionate and innovative care to those living with complex, chronic, respiratory conditions. The MCI is recognized worldwide for its expert care and groundbreaking research.

Despite having a new home at the Glen site, the MCI is under tremendous pressure to do more with less funding. That is why we are counting on you. With your support, we can ensure that MCI patients continue to benefit from exceptional respiratory care and that people around the world benefit from our team’s crucial research. We will use your donations to develop new programs and services, purchase the latest diagnostic tools and medical equipment and fund research that will allow the health team to detect, diagnose and treat respiratory diseases more rapidly, efficiently and painlessly.

Your donation to the Montreal Chest Institute Foundation will allow millions – here in Quebec and around the world – live longer, healthier lives. Help us offer the best respiratory care possible. Help us realize more medical breakthroughs. Help us make breathing easier. Your donation will improve – even save – lives.
