Join Us in Abby’s Rally against Cancer!

Participate in Uno’s DoughRaiser on October 5-6, 2017

UNO’s Pizzaria and Grill, at 970 Paradise Road in Swampscott, is hosting a 2-Day Dough Raiser to benefit the Abby Grant Fund. Dine at UNO’s in Swampscott on Oct. 5-6, and UNO’s will donate up to 20 percent of your check to the Abby Grant Fund when you show the fundraiser ticket to your server.

Abby Grant, from Swampscott MA, was diagnosed with inoperable Esophageal Cancer on July 10, 2017. In mid-July, Abby started her aggressive treatment that includes radiation and chemotherapy. She underwent two separate surgeries to insert a trachea tube to allow her to breathe independently and a feeding tube to provide proper nutrition. She’s completed her chemotherapy treatments and has more radiation treatments to go before she has a second full round of scans.

The family, including her loving husband Craig and their two children Ben and Aliza, are usually helping others. Now, it is our turn to help them! The fundraiser will help the Grant family with medical expenses, treatment costs and associated expenses that are not covered by insurance.

Please help by ordering from UNO’s on Oct. 5-6 from 11:30 a.m. until the restaurant closes. The fundraiser includes dine-in, takeout, catering, delivery and even bar sales. You must show the fundraiser ticket to your server. It is valid to show the ticket on your cell phone too. Cut out the coupon below or visit Uno’s Facebook page to save the ticket on your phone.
