Financial Assistance

The Joe Andruzzi Foundation is committed to providing financial and emotional assistance to the broad community of cancer patients and families living within New England. We aim to serve as many patients as possible, continually growing our giving to meet the immeasurable need. The Joe Andruzzi Foundation Financial Assistance Program provides grants up to $700 to cancer patients and their families battling cancer, allowing them to focus on treatment and recovery.


All candidates must be receiving active cancer treatments, provide verification of a cancer diagnosis, and documentation of financial need. We serve patients throughout New England. 

The Joe Andruzzi Foundation’s Financial Assistance program is designed to assist families with basic living expenses, for example: mortgage, rent, electricity, gas, oil, telephone, cable, or other similar expenses. All grant monies are mailed to the patient with checks written directly to the service providers. The Financial Assistance Program does not help with the cost of medical expenses or credit card bills. JAF does not pay money directly to applicants or family members. If selected, patients and/or families may only receive one award in a twelve month period.
