BENEFITING: JOE ANDRUZZI FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Aug 08, 2017
We've all been impacted by cancer one way or another. I watched my mother battle cancer when I was in college. My family was fortunate enough to be covered by a quality healthcare program set up through the Boston Public Schools where my mother has been teaching special needs children for over 30 years. Some families aren't as fortunate, lets spread the love.
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is dedicated to providing financial assistance to patients and families, helping them focus on recovery – not bills. It also funds research at Boston Children’s Hospital, building on the Andruzzis’ longstanding commitment to cutting edge pediatric brain cancer research. Joe and Jen also strive to keep families positive through the Foundation’s (Up)Beat cancer initiative, organizing outings and visits with New England’s professional athletes. The Foundation believes laughter is the best medicine, and aims to help families forget cancer now and then – through fun, humor and good times.
