July 23 Kiwanis Program: Cynthia Cutcliff spoke on The Compassionate Friends, Supporting Family after a Child Dies.

Cynthia Cutcliff, The Compassionate Friends of Morris Chapter Leader, spoke at the Kiwanis breakfast meeting at Charlie Brown’s in Chatham Township on July 23. Also speaking were Pat Tetta and Jim Lanahan. She introduced her remarks by saying “those who need us will find us and those who find us will be helped.”

The Mission of The Compassionate Friends: When a child dies, at any age, the family suffers intense pain and may feel hopeless and isolated. The Compassionate Friends provides highly personal comfort, hope, and support to every family experiencing the death of a son or a daughter, a brother or a sister, or a grandchild, and helps others better assist the grieving family. There are 640 chapters in the United States. They hold local meetings in Chatham Twp. and Parsippany once a month to help bereaved family members.

Throughout the presentation, the audience loudly applauded the stories shared by Cynthia, Pat and Jim and thanked them for their message.

She handed out brochures for the national organization, which is 501c3. The Morris, NJ area has designed a brochure and needs donations to pay for printing and distributing it.
