Craig MacDonald has been battling a rare form of a neuromuscular disease since he was 17 years old. The genetic condition, which has advanced in recent years, affects and severely impacts muscle function and everyday life.

As the specialized care centre for neurosurgery and neurological care in Atlantic Canada, the QEII Health Sciences Centre treats some of the most complex, neurological patient cases in the region – including Craig’s.

Craig’s experience with the entire neuroscience team inspired him to create the Craig Mac Comfort Initiative (CMCI); a fund providing comfort to neuroscience patients being treated at the QEII. In addition to purchasing items that provide added comfort for those requiring hospitalization, the Craig Mac Comfort Initiative aims to ease some of the financial burden placed on neuroscience patients and their families. The fund, which was established in 2015, is made possible by a series of community fundraisers hosted by Craig throughout Nova Scotia.


The QEII Foundation inspires generosity to advance health care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. With financial support from all levels of the community, the Foundation helps fund new technologies, research, innovation and education that contribute to life-changing moments experienced every day by patients and their loved ones.
