Grateful Friends

Grateful Friends needs your help! We are a non profit, co-founded by Gwen Mahan Ryan and Lee Miraglia who were both diagnosed with two different types of cancer at the same time. Gwen and Lee were grateful for the love and support they received and now wish to bring some comfort, love and support to adults facing the difficulties and challenges cancer brings.

We are rounding up items for comfort baskets to be delivered to adults living with or being treated for cancer and we need your help.

We are looking for the following items to be dropped off at the Cap One Cafe at Lynnfield Marketplace beginning February 11th.  The drive for items will end on March 15th. Please let a Grateful Friend volunteer know if you are unable to deliver the items yourself and we will get it there for you. Thank you for your generosity!
