All of us across the Can-SOLVE CKD Network are saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague Chantal Boucher.
Chantal’s compassion and dedication to Canada’s kidney community shone through in everything she did. She worked for more than 20 years with the Kidney Foundation of Canada in the Programs and Research departments. In this role, she was a vital pillar of support to the KRESCENT Program, helping to foster the next generation of kidney research scientists.
Chantal was a member of the Can-SOLVE CKD Operations Team from the network’s earliest days and played an important role in supporting the patient council and its members. She was an enthusiastic champion for patient involvement in research and made many contributions to the growth and strength of the Can-SOLVE CKD patient partner community.
She was a warm and genuine colleague who faced every situation with good humour. We will miss her dearly.
We invite members of the Can-SOLVE CKD community to share memories of Chantal and messages of condolence in the space below. Comments will be reviewed before they are posted.
