Meghan’s Light

Meghan’s Light was established to commemorate the life and legacy of Meghan Hukowicz Zoll, Class of 1993.


One day after her 39th birthday in September 2014, Meghan succumbed to cystic fibrosis (CF) after a valiant 78 day fight against the disease in the ICU at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Meghan was a mother, wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, soul sister, niece, cousin, godmother, friend and colleague. Meghan lovingly inspired family and friends by her courage, strength, and determination in her day-to-day battle against CF for 39 years. She was feisty, radiant, warm and caring.

Friends and family were devastated by her loss and came together a few months after her funeral to celebrate her. Their December 2014 meeting evolved into Meghan’s Light whose mission is to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and to inspire hope and courage in patients, families and communities impacted by the disease. Meghan’s Light remembers the light without and the light within that radiated from Meghan during her earthly journey and the continued presence of her light that shines brightly today.

The MacDuffie School is proud to be a sponsor of the First Annual Meghan’s Light 5k and Family Fun Walk.
