The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) is committed to providing help, hope, and a reason to smile, for New England cancer patients and their families by contributing financial support when it is needed most. We do this by creating access to financial assistance, services, and other resources that reduce the financial and emotional burden on cancer patients, delivering support for household expenses, food, extraordinary needs, transportation, and fostering self-care. JAF serves as a critical lifeline for cancer centers and hospitals to help their patients participate in life-saving treatment..
The Annual Gala is JAF's largest fundraiser each year, raising critical funds for those in need. Whether in-person or virtual, JAF welcomes supporters, healthcare partners, and celebrities far and wide who recognize the unique role the Foundation plays in the lives of hundreds of thousands of New England families to address the issue of financial toxicity for cancer patients.
