About Us

The goal of the Robert F. Terry Jr. Foundation is to help families experiencing the devastating effects of pediatric brain tumors with non-medical expenses. 

The affects of pediatric brain tumors reach every aspect of a family’s life.  Families are permanently impacted emotionally, financially, and physically due their child’s illness.  Health insurance covers very little financially in the overall care of a child with a brain tumor.  Resources beyond insurance via social programs are extremely limited and they rarely meet the needs of these families during such a difficult time.  A stressful and exhaustive situation is often exacerbated by the climbing financial burden a sick child.

We help with the day-to-day expenses while children are on treatment.  The mortgage, the rent, the lights, the heat; you name it.  Thanks to the generosity of our supporters over the past 13 years, the Foundation has been able to substantially help over 200 families from the Jimmy Fund Pediatric Brain Tumor Clinic at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the New England area ease their burden during unimaginable circumstances.
