ABOUT US

Every day loved ones are living with the pains of neurological diseases.

 
 

The McCourt Foundation (TMF) is building a community to cure Neurologic Disorders with a special focus on Alzheimer’s, ALS, MS and Parkinson’s diseases.

We are proud to partner with the Neurology Departments at Brigham and Women's Hospital and  Massachusetts General Hospital. While we are committed to finding a cure, TMF is also invested in neurological patients and families actively living with these conditions. Through financial support and medical resources, we are able to fulfill the needs of those families who require it right away. Click here to learn about our financial assistance program.

OUR HISTORY

The McCourt Family has a long-standing history of health challenges caused by Neurologic Diseases. Long before any one of the seven sons were born, their father, Robert, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the young age of twenty-five. Robert lived with MS for forty-two years, until he passed away in 1991 at the age of sixty-seven. Soon after his death, his wife, Mary, was diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease and passed away in 2008.

Following Robert’s death in 1992, the McCourt family and many friends began raising money to further research and raise awareness through partnerships with the MS Society and the Alzheimer's Association. What started as a hobby turned into a lifelong passion, and in 2004 The McCourt Foundation (TMF) was formally established as a 501c (3) nonprofit organization.

TMF was founded upon and still remains focused on Neurological Diseases to help patients and families affected by Alzheimer's, MS, ALS and Parkinson's diseases. The McCourt Foundation recognizes the importance of other health-related causes, and has since expanded its horizon to partner with other like-minded organizations.
