Griffin’s Friends has come to know that small acts of kindness can provide the relief that children and families need in times of greatest turmoil. Countless expressions of hope and support result from Griffin’s Friends activities each year.
• Holiday parties, trips to stage performances and sporting events, summer picnics, and in-hospital and outpatient entertainment;
• Massage Therapy to supplement treatment, encourage relaxation and promote coping;
• The purchase of arts and crafts supplies, toys, computers and computer games, videos and other things needed for recreation in Baystate Children’s Hospital and the outpatient Oncology/Hematology Clinic;
• And the funding of a program coordinator whose sole function is the enhancement of activities for Hospital and Clinic cancer patients.
