I am running the 2021 Falmouth Road Race with team JAF in order to help raise funds for people who need financial assistance during their fight to survive. I am running for two special people in my life. One who is currently fighting cancer. Another one who has been was a grant recipient from JAF. I have seen first hand the financial effects cancer has on a person and the relief a grant from JAF can provide. When you are fighting to beat cancer, you shouldn't have to worry about how to pay for essential needs. Getting financial assistance while battling cancer can greatly help with a persons mental health which I believe is an important part of the treatment process. I think it is important to have an organization like JAF in order to help provide financial assistance to people undergoing treatment for various types of cancers. By running the Falmouth Road Race, I am able to raise awareness to the JAF organization and pay it forward to anyone fighting cancer during their treatments.
Cancer has not just affected me personally but professionally. I am an occupational therapist for the past 16 years working with adults in order to increase their independence. I have seen how cancer has effected their ability to complete tasks which they love and be able to complete every day tasks. It has been a privilege to be a part of my patients life and help in the recovery process.
I have been able to be an advocate for my patients during their recovery process.
Thank you in advance for your support financially or with encouraging words during this journey. I appreciate any help for me to reach my goal!!
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation 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.
The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) was established to serve cancer patients of all ages throughout New England who experience the hidden costs of cancer as a result of a diagnosis. Cancer-related income loss or reduction combined with rising treatment costs often leads to financial stress as families struggle to cover their everyday expenses. JAF understands that crucial living expenses are not put on hold because of a diagnosis, and our Financial Assistance Program helps alleviate financial stress through the distribution of grants and gift cards to assist with rent/mortgage payments, utilities, food, and other household expenses.
