Hi Everyone,

My name is Meghan Carroll, and I am excited you have landed on my page to join my on my journey. I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event (June 2nd 6-9pm at Third Space Brewing) recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).

I am hoping to raise $2,500 to help aid in research money to find a cure for CF. Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.

Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click the Donate button on this page to make a donation that will be credited to my fundraising efforts. Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated!

Further, if you'd like to attend Cheers to Milwaukee's Finest' even that culminates the Milwaukee's Finest campaign by recognizing the Honorees and inviting the greater Milwaukee community to come together to make a difference, please click the 'Buy Tickets' button on the left! This year the event is at Third Space Brewing and will feature live music, craft beers, corn-hole, and more! Should be a blast!

10th Annual Milwaukee’s Finest Celebration Event

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!

I was nominated for this journey by Tom Koops, a partner at my firm - PwC, who's youngest son is living with CF. Through this program, I have been paired with a family where I have met Mabyn, 9, who is currently living with CF. I have gotten to know Mabyn, her family, and the incredible journey she has been on - from first being diagnosed with this chronic disease to undergoing extensive daily treatments to starting TRIKAFTA (a new, life-altering drug that came out in 2019). Through the funds raised and help of the CF Foundation, this new drug TRIKAFTA has allowed Mabyn and many others with CF to increase their life expectancy each year they take it.
