Barrington, IL
Vice-Chair of Board of Directors

Terry Griffin has practiced law for 24 years with Eugene L. Griffin & Associates in Chicago, a firm that specializes in property tax assessment appeal work.  He is a graduate of the University of Illinois, with a law degree from the John Marshall Law School in Chicago. He and his wife Deanna organized FightSMA-Illinois in 1997,  after their daughter Courtney was diagnosed with SMA. They immediately launched “PumpkinSMAsh” Halloween fundraising events at the Chicago area venue “Goebbert’s Pumpkin Farm.” Terry credits his positive and hopeful outlook about spinal muscular atrophy to his father, Eugene, who often said “…keep the hope alive.  Never lose sight of the fact that this thing will be cured. Fight the good fight.”
