The Donald L. Perry Foundation For Cancer Research, Inc. is named in honor of the late Donald L. Perry, who lost his battle with cancer at the young age of 40. Don was raised in Woodbury, New Jersey and spent summers at his family home in North Wildwood. He eventually became a permanent resident of North Wildwood and worked in the restaurant business in Cape May.

The mission of the Donald L. Perry Foundation is to make his dream a reality and keep hope alive for those stricken with cancer by funding research programs that offer new treatment options.
