Gavin and his family have asked me to pass along their gratitude.

Gavin’s Aunt, Margo Tallarico wanted us to pass this message along, “Gavin would like to thank everyone for their love and support! He and our family have a long road ahead. As a family we have decided the road to take in the best interest of Gavin and the quality of life he deserves. He has a major surgery scheduled for Friday. Please continue to keep him in your prayers.”

We will continue to update you as we get messages from Gavin’s family. He is in good spirits – and is quite a remarkable little boy.

Please continue to pray for Gavin and his family. If you would like to send him a card – he would love it.

Send cards to:

Oshei Children’s Hospital

About Me



Welcome to Totally Buffalo! A local lifestyle website.

My name is Mary Friona-Celani and I am the creator of this site! I’m a wife, a mom, a grandma, a Buffalo booster, an entrepreneur and a small business owner. I’m so glad you stopped by.  After 20 years in the buffalo media, I went out on my own to tell stories about the people, places, events and all-around fabulousness of this wonderful place we call home. Buffalo is different and so is this site. We are here to share stories, encourage kindness, and help make this a better place to live.

We’ll help those in need when we can through our charity arm, Totally Buffalo Cares.

We help local small businesses, artisans and vendors though our events and our Totally Buffalo Stores.

We’ll do all of this with a little help from friends in our community.
