Description

Griffin's Friends is a group of volunteers dedicated to providing support to children with cancer. Founded in 1994 in Springfield, Massachusetts, Griffin's Friends is named for Griffin D.

GRIFFIN'S FRIENDS is one of those rare groups that has become more than a community of like-minded people, it's truly a family invested in supporting the social and emotional needs of families and sibs on treatment. We care because we know ... we've been there.
