Reeling In A Dream
The Timothy P Roberts "Reeling in a Dream" Fund was founded by family and friends following Tim's death on August 25th, 2005 after a year long battle with esophageal cancer. He was 22 years old. Throughout his struggle, Tim showed amazing compassion for fellow cancer-stricken young adults, even as he was among the most ill. His dream was to provide things that would make a big difference toward making their lives fun, easier and satisfying, even in the face of their illness. While Tim did not see his dream fully realized, the Funds's goal is to fulfill his dream, and more importantly, the dreams of others, in loving memory of Tim's compassion.
"Reeling in a Dream" is administered by the staff of Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and one hundred percent of each donation goes directly to the Fund for patient use.
We thank everyone who has been involved in Tim's dream. The Timothy P Roberts "Reeling in a Dream" Fund relies strictly on local fundraising and donations to meet its needs. It is overseen by the Timothy Roberts Advisory Committee (TRAC) made up of a representation of Tim's family and friends. All fundraising efforts must be approved by TRAC. Protecting the integrity of Tim's name and his foundation is of the utmost priority with TRAC. The Bassman's Ball, The "Reeling In A Dream" Fishing Derby and the Tourney for Tim/Rockin for Roberts would not be successful without all of our local supporters, and for that, we are truly appreciative. We hope you will consider making a donation in memory of a loved one, a birthday or other special occasion. It will certainly brighten the day of a young adult cancer patient.
