The mission of Meghan’s Light is to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and to inspire hope and courage in patients, families and communities impacted by the disease.
Countdown to Race Day - October 5th, 2019
Meghan’s Light 65 Wellness Wishes grants 65 health-focused awards for wellness memberships and activities to Cystic Fibrosis patients treated at Boston Children’s Hospital and Baystate Medical Center. The target number 65 references sixty-five roses a term used since 1965 by young children with cystic fibrosis trying to pronounce the name of their disease. The project honors Meghan’s lifelong passion for fitness.
Meghan's Light benefits the Cystic Fibrosis Discovery Fund supporting Dr. Craig Gerard’s Pulmonary and Respiratory Disease research at Boston Children's and the Extraordinary Needs Fund supporting patient care, staff education, new technologies and treatments and other initiatives as needed in the Cystic Fibrosis Clinic at Boston Children's.
