The Joe Andruzzi Foundation (JAF) has been granted $50,000 from One Mission to establish JAF’s One Mission Pediatric Assistance Program, allowing the Foundation to expand the financial support it provides to pediatric patients and families throughout New England – like Paisley and the Benjamin family.
Since 2009, One Mission has raised more than $10 million and has brought smiles, comfort, and support to over 10,000 kids fighting cancer and their families. One Mission’s programs and services help patients and families get through the emotional and financial challenges that childhood cancer brings.
With the One Mission grant, JAF will look to build new relationships with New England pediatric facilities, increasing the Foundation’s pediatric funding by 50%.
In addition to increasing monetary grants, JAF will also launch a new program to provide a gift package to each pediatric cancer patient recipient during their in-hospital stay or at-home recovery.
“I lived through the nightmare of pediatric cancer, so I know what it’s like. These patients and families are going through some of the darkest days of their lives, and on top of that, they’ve got bills stacking up at home. Our mission is to be there for these families throughout their journey, giving them the love, support and hope they need during this difficult time. One Mission is proud to work with the Joe Andruzzi Foundation in support of our mutual goal to help children and families get through cancer.”
